Mea culpa

Group Info

Our Jungian shadow must be expressed so that we may integrate our disparate selves. vicious-verse shall be a safe haven for the dark poetry that festers within us. We must be completely human if we are to know ourselves.

I am an Admin at your affiliate group :iconthe-black-hole:
We are going through a revamping period, and are hosting a contest that allows people to tell their stories and open up to our community. It is designed to help people, and I would LOVE if you guys can spare a feature for our contest. ----> Link to the journal explaining the rules and how-tos

Schofield-Alan Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Professional Writer is alive and well! We've been stickering your poetry up around the metro for like four months and it seems the community is eating it up. July's running light on submissions so throw us what you have for our all-in-air-conditioning July issue! Cheers!

Hi. I run a magazine called Surreal Grotesque, we bring together bizarre art and surreal fiction. While our audience is primarily interested in "horror writing", we like strangeness and surrealism in all forms. we love to help promote artists since we are a free publication, we have a diverse readership of over a thousand people so far. Since we cannot pay, all art remains the property of the artists and we own no part of it, we are merely representing your material to an audience and provide links so that if people are interested they may commission you for your art. If you think you might have something to contribute, email me at: and check out our magazine at

We also love dark poetry!

just as an FYI - your website lists everything BUT poetry, so you may want to add that in :) a lot of us are gunshy and would assume that that means poetry is a no-go!
