The Brutal Issue

Deadline: 30th June 2017

IMPORTANT: Due to the fantastic volume of submissions, we have filled up our free submission windows and have had to add a small £2 fee in order to upgrade and reopen them. We aren't happy with this situation, and are working to ensure it does not happen again. However, for the remainder of the submission window for Brutal, you will unfortunately have to pay this fee. Please be aware this is a temporary fix. Please email either of our Editors at or for more info.

Is it okay to kill for survival? Is all fair in love and war? And is police brutality inevitable when a nation values security over safety...? 

HCE magazine is calling out for international artists and writers to explore topics related to 'BRUTALITY/BRUTALISM' in the form of poetry, short fiction, articles and artwork. We encourage bold and/or striking interpretations upon the theme.

Please read all guidelines (do not submit without reading them) and submit your work via the relevant category links below.
