Last Resort Literary Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

This magazine isn’t one that plays it safe. We were started by writers who veer on the more dangerous side, who want to see fiction and poetry that pushes boundaries and isn’t often considered politically correct. By this we mean works that aren’t afraid to be a little controversial or biting, not works that are bigoted in nature.

We are a liminal literary space. We want works that explore the murky, grey areas of the human condition. Like our aesthetic, we want to be the seedy nightlife of the literary industry. Show us the darkness within the light and vice, the glitter on the dirt.

We are also not picky! Send us works that you think will not be published by any other literary magazine.
