|Information about your publication:
||Squalorly is not your average literary journal. We do not seek scholarly imaginings, or retellings of stories not able to turn heads or change lives. We do not seek stories that don’t threaten to scratch the surfaces of the complex world we live in. We do not wish to be educated or entertained by martians, demons, ghosts, or fairy godmothers. Though we know the value of such stories, we are after a different aesthetic, and would like to guide those submissions to other outlets. Squalorly does seek well-thought out stories whose intent is to be ambitious, but controlled, relatively quiet, but loud in message and emotion, suspending of disbelief, but realistic. Above all else, Squalorly wants to be moved, amazed, horrified, and educated about our world, whether it’s by verse or through prose. What we want are new voices with new stories to tell that provoke thought and inspire action. We aim to publish stories from the other side of literature, those unexposed and untold, but worthy of being heard.
