Journal Sugar Mule

Journal Swamp Biscuits & Tea

Swamp Biscuits & Tea is an online journal of imaginative short fiction. Though magic realism is our primary focus, our journal strives to coalesce an interesting variety of styles and genres, of strangeness and familiarity, into a weird and wonderful gumbo that is uniquely our own. We publish five stories per issue, and new issues are released shortly after all slots are filled.
