HFR is invested in supporting and publishing art by the LGBTQA+ community, Muslim writers, writers of color, female-identifying writers, undocumented immigrant writers, survivors of abuse or assault, disabled writers, plus other marginalized groups. White supremacy and other hate is inexcusable, and we wish to counteract and stand against these prevalent attitudes. HFR has reaffirmed its mission to elevate these marginalized groups by initiating a new blog feature, #NotMyPresident, an online space for these communities to publish new writing. Whether you’re an emerging or established writer, we want to witness your work. We will not succumb to vile rhetoric or back down from publishing important literature. Writers from these marginalized groups are encouraged to submit. This call is not only for election literature but also a place dedicated to promote new fiction, poetry, nonfiction, journalism, comics, hybrids, and more. Open year-round.

We are looking for essays written on writing craft, politics, and international writers to feature online. To us, "essay" is a loose term/form, and the topics and form are open to interpretation. The final product can be a traditional essay, poem, short story, list, definition, collage, or whatever you can think up. Please visit the essay section of our website to see what we’ve published in the past, and keep submissions concise—approximately 1000-2000 words.
