Mission Statement:

Fiery Scribe Review is a triannual literary magazine aiming to amplify the voices of those who have sealed up flames in their bones and hearts and minds. We want to read your fears, your secrets, your speculations, your strange perspectives. If it isn't fiery, it isn't for us.

As we are committed to providing a platform for underrepresented voices, we encourage submissions from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Submission Criteria:

- We are particularly interested in unpublished writings that evoke strong emotions and exhibit fiery passion.

- Submissions are welcome across all literary categories, including but not limited to poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, opinions, book reviews, and experimental writing.

Our Preferences:

- Genre-bending writing. 

- We love poetry & fiction that thrive on language and symbols and explore the depths of human sensibilities.

- Thriller and speculative writings get us excited. 

- We want your personal essays 

However, please don't be restricted by the items above. Submit to us and let us make a decision.


NB 1: Our expedited submission window will be open for JUST 24 HOURS on August 15th.
