Inaugural Issue Preview

We are excited to announce the preview of inaugural issue of The Bleeding Lion: A Journal of Contemporary Arts & Letters. We received a lot of deliciously macabre submissions & we are very grateful for each of them.

We have published some teasers here. Read Anastasia Stelse’s “Consumption”, Changming Yuan’s short and wondrous poem “Banyan”, Michael Passafiume’s deeply aching “Scrapbook with pages missing” & Joy Carter’s “How to Build a Person”.

Featured prose includes the always masterful Robert Vivian, with “Chlorophyll Destiny Desiring”, an excerpt from the engaging “Long Before the Sun Came Up” by Patty Somlo & Moriah Hampton’s quick paced & elegant “Human Contact”.

The whole issue will be out soon.

We are already reading for the third issue! Visit our submission guidelines & send us your work.
