Scum is an online literary magazine, launched in February 2013. We aim to deliver new writing a couple times a week and publish fiction, memoir, rants, and basically whatevz.  Scum has filthy feminist leanings and a disregard for propriety. Scum is for people who haven’t figured their lives out yet but will probably get there one day. It’s basically like that Miley Cyrus song “The Climb” except that it is not like that at all.
