Submission Deadline: HOCUS Reading: The Tarot–Submissions Now Open

HOCUS is a quarterly reading event in the guise of a secret society. Our reading events are simultaneously silly and serious. “Hilarious,” “profound,” “close to the bone,” and “goofy” are all words which were bandied about by attendees of our last event. Submissions are now open for our May 20th event. The theme is The Tarot. Works of prose or poetry which deal with this theme, either directly or obliquely, are welcome. We are looking for work which falls within the “literary” genre. No fantasy, sci-fi, horror, or romance please.
