Southern Fried Karma seeks submissions of unpublished book-length fiction. We focus on cultivating the artistic voices of the new millennium with a Southern accent. The works we seek go beyond stereotypical depictions and illuminate the multiplicity of the Southern experience: past, present, or future, the good, the bad, and especially the unexpected.
