Fickle Muses is an online journal of poetry, fiction and art engaged with myth and legend. We feature a poet or fiction writer each week, accompanied by featured artwork. New features are posted on Sundays.
We return to the schedule on Sunday, June 21, and reopen submissions for poetry and art June 21-August 2. Fiction submissions will reopen at a later date, to be announced.
Please support contributing artists and writers by visiting their websites, following them on social media, purchasing their work, etc.
