Submission Call: The Blade & Beyond Wants Your Writings

The guidelines couldn’t be simpler!

The Blade & Beyond is always open for submissions, but in case you need a prompt or reminder, here it is!

We’re looking for good-quality writing about self-harm and recovery. It doesn’t have to be perfect — nothing truly is, and that’s OK! — we’re happy to work with you on anything…



The Blade and Beyond is a publication dedicated to non-judgemental stories of struggles with self-harm, recovery, and everything in between.
