Journal Fickle Muses

Fickle Muses is an online journal of poetry, fiction and art engaged with myth and legend. We feature a poet or fiction writer each week, accompanied by featured artwork. Fiction and poetry submissions should creatively incorporate myth or legend, for example by retelling ancient myths in the context of the contemporary world, reimagining characters and events within earlier contexts, evoking mythologies underlying speculative genres, or otherwise cultivating new growth from our mythic roots. Art submissions are open to any theme or style.
