Malevolent Soap is an independent, non-profit journal of poetry and fiction edited by Felix Garner Davis.

We’re based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia, but our archive features voices from around the world. We publish regularly.

Anything goes, but we’re partial to imagistic work that mines intersections of cultural artefact and human behaviour, retaining a keen, if subtle, metaphysical edge. Whether it invokes Nicolas Cage or Motoko Kusanagi, we’re interested. We champion concreteness, reference, fusion and oddity.

NB: Our work occurs on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We pay respect to Elders past, present and future.
