Founded in 2015, The Opiate is a quarterly literary magazine dedicated to publishing envelope-pushing work. We accept both print and online submissions. Flash fiction is preferred for online. Often, for poetry, we choose one piece for print and one for online. We accept criticism/essays for publication as well. There is no specific theme or criteria required in terms of the nature of the content, so long as it “moves” us, if you will. Click the button below to send fiction, poetry or criticism.
