About/Send Work

We’re currently closed for new work until June 20th, 2024!

ALOCASIA accepts creative writing of all genres from queer writers on a rolling basis with no reading fee. Please send no more than 6 pieces to ALOCASIAmagazine@gmail.com. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, and we DO accept previously-published work. Please send writing in either .docx or .pdf format.

Please include a brief bio, and inform us where your piece was previously-published, if applicable.

We appreciate both traditional work, as well as the weird, erotic, explicit, anti-colonial, and whatever you can come up with.

This is a journal about plants, gardens, gardening, parks, and indoor horticulture. Please don’t send us work that isn’t about plants.

We do not accept AI-generated or AI-assisted writing or art.


ALOCASIA requests First North American Serial Rights from previously unpublished work. We request Reprint Rights, Electronic Archival Rights, and Anthology Rights from all work you agree to publish with us. We pay $10 per contributor. Our ISSN is 2831-8404.
