22 // Invite Readers In with Sakina Fakhri and Diana McClure of Azure magazine

In this episode of the Lit Mag Love Podcast, host Rachel Thompson talks with Sakina Fakhri and Diana McClure, founders of Azure magazine.

Azure accepts literary fiction, creative non-fiction, excerpts, screenplays, stageplays, fragments, meanderings, philosophy and poetry, in submissions of up to 50 pages. They don’t charge fees for submissions, and here’s something interesting—if your submission is part of a novel-length work or feature-length screenplay, there exists the possibility of publishing it in installments in future issues.

They talk about the connection of interiority to empathy—how writers give readers that inner experience of something they don’t understand. Listen to this conversation with Sakina Fakhri & Diana McClure to learn more about the unique, cerebral and empathetic writing they love to publish in Azure.
