Black Poppy Review is a literary journal featuring free verse poetry, flash fiction, mini-chapbook collections, and book reviews of a darker nature.  We want work that lingers and haunts.  Send us horror, paranormal, gothic, ghosts, hauntings, dark fairy tales, the unknown, and the everyday observed through a dark lens.

Black Poppy Review publishes work periodically throughout the year.
