From the Editor
(b)OINK, We publish first-rate, experimental, edgy, dark and fun fiction, poetry, CNF and a monthly column called VOICES. We offered our first Flash Fiction contest with guest judge Kathy Fish (ends 8/15) and use Submittable as our manager.
We seek in-your-face fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction that are experimental, gut-wrenching, terrifying, stultifying, breakneck speed, sex-driven, whooshing out, and secretive.
Think Ice Capades on Acid. Think January in June. Think Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.
A world turned upside down? Yes, that is (b)OINK.
Our first Flash Fiction Contest is currently happening (closes August 15th) and we plan to have more! We had our first (b)OINK reading in June, and will repeat at another venue in October. We plan to launch online workshops in Fall 2017.
