Speculative Diary Guidelines:
Speculative diary is a subgenre of creative non-fiction that incorporates science fiction, fantasy, and horror elements into diary writing. Diary is anything from "Dear Diary" style writing to journaling, to sketches, vignettes, fragments, scintillae, or notes. What makes diary diary for this call is work that is concerned with chronology and kairology. For this specific call, speculative can include any sort of SF/F/Horror mythos, tropes, or archetypes. Speculative will also encompass the paranormal, supernatural, mythic, dystopian, alternate histories, retrofutures, Afrofuturism, dreampunk, Ethno/Southern Gothic, and hi-tech mystery/thriller. The point is to bring genre fiction ideas and aesthetics into one's processing of the real world and memories.
All submissions for the Speculative Diary Issue should be sent to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
