We are Pro-Writer, Pro-Diversity, and Anti-walls.


UNBUILD walls publishes speculative fiction. Send us your sci-fi, fantasy, horror, weird tales, and any story or sub-genre that transports the reader to a speculative realm.

Our mission is to publish work by both emerging and established writers, and we strive to feature diverse voices.

We are looking for writing that is literary in style. To us, that means we are looking for stories that have something to say about what it means to be human (even if you’re writing about Lizard-people or talking rocks). We want creative use of language and structure, and experimental forms are always welcome.

Please check out our submission guidelines for more details.

We are a small team of writers and readers who are committed to promoting our fellow writers. We welcome students who wish to participate as readers or gain editorial experience.

For editorial enquiries, we can be reached at: unbuildwalls (at) gmail (dot) com. Please note that we do not accept submissions to this email address. We only accept work through submittable.

Currently UNBUILD walls is an infrequent online-only publication. That said, we plan on offering each issue as a digital download and will do limited print-run yearly anthologies if the universe deems it acceptable. If you are interested in being notified about new online issues, new digital downloads, or new print runs, please subscribe to our mailing list.

“Those who build walls are their own prisoners. I’m going to fulfill my proper function in the social organism. I’m going to go and unbuild walls.”
