Information about your publication:We are looking for good writing. What does that mean? Writing that uses adjectives stronger than good to describe itself. These are some other adjectives we use: Esoteric. Psychedlic. Existential. Strange. Fantastic. Surreal. Sub-real. Agnostic. Insectile.
What type of submissions you are looking for:We are primarily seeking prose and poetry. Yes, that’s broad, but we’re seeking anything and everything. We are looking for anything that’s playful, but not obtuse; experimental, but not contrived. We’re mostly interested in things that say something, rather than things that talk about saying something. We aren’t strict on word counts. However, because this is a shorter volume and we want to showcase a lot of writers, most of the prose pieces we accept are between 200-1,500 words. Most poems we like are no longer than 30ish lines. Of course, in this economy, we can fudge the numbers. We like writers ranging anywhere from John Barth to Vladimir Nabokov to Franz Kakfa to David Foster Wallace to Jonathan Ames to Sam Lipsyte to Blaster Al Ackerman to Haruki Murakami to Jorge Luis Borges to Daniel A.I.U. Higgs to Norman Mailer to Hunter S. Thompson to Jose Saramago to Freidrich Nietzsche. Fill in the blanks.
