Why Hushed Heartache?
Hushed Heartache Literary Magazine is a new, online literary magazine with a focus on literature that possess an overflow of feeling and unapologetic truth. We’re seeking to find pieces that are authentic in emotion and ignore societal judgment, whether that be through original fiction, poetry, nonfiction, or anything with a twist!
Essentially, writing is truly a complicated, sometimes excruciating process, because in our respective cultures and societies, honesty and passionate intensity are suppressed as a means to “keep the peace.” We find validation in poets and writers who take the leap of faith and write with an emotional and candid nature.
All work is previously unpublished and calls for submissions for our next issue will be announced in July 2021.
