It's our first birthday! The inaugural issue of Beyond Words was out in March 2020. Since then we've published 14 books: 12 normal issues and two special queer editions.

To celebrate our birthday, we will publish a festive HAPPY BIRTHDAY themed issue! It will look exactly like our normal editions, full of art and emotions, with only one twist: all pieces will be related to birthdays

We will consider any literary work - poem, flash fiction, short story, as long as the piece has a maximum of 1000 words. 



We are looking for visual works for our 2021 issues. Beyond Words Magazine features art and literature and is published monthly. We offer both digital and print editions. 

You are invited to submit your artwork (up to 15 pieces in one submission). We will get back to you as soon as possible.
