Submission Guidelines

Welcome to the second issue of Fire and Brimstone, an online journal hosted by CATS3000 which celebrates the visionary and fantastic, and the potential of fantasy to fire our creative minds in the present.

We welcome all creative writing that informs our present state or allows us to escape into the realms of the future.

Past, present and future exist here in a creative mix at stimulating our thinking, feeling and action.

The magazine welcomes contributions that explore the human condition, or relationship with technology, and our hopes, fears and dreams as creative beings.

All genres of writing are welcome. Please see our submission guidelines for further details. Where writings are reasonably short, they are published as web pages. Where writings are longer, we make them available to you in downloadable format. Enjoy!
