ABOUT US    



We are currently closed to new submissions.

Our Fall 2015 issue will be a queer-themed collection of old and new magic realism stories and poems. As a preview, take a peek at some of the works we've published in the past that will be reprinted in this collection. Please note that this collection is filled and we are no longer taking new submissions.

Portals, by Tamara Walker (Issue 12)

What Follows Us, by Adam McOmber (Issue 7)

Dreaming of the Manananggal, by Victorya Chase (Issue 9)

A cappella Zoo's focus is magic realism; its broader scope encompasses slipstream and other modes of exploring contemporary life alongside the imagination. For more information on the sort of work we've made a home for in general, take a peek at our issues and read more about us.
