The creative works are clear representations of Experimental Writing, and the authors provide commentary on that aspect of them. This is also the place for anyone participating in the Experimental literary world to share information, opinion, etc. as long as it what you send it not published elsewhere. This is the journal that changes its middle name regularly. So, while it is listed officially as Exclusive, as of today it is called Exclusive Windows Magazine. It is housed within a resource website about all things Experimental Writing, including a long list of links of magazines, articles, presses, etc. The magazine nominates for Pushcart Prize, and others. When your work is accepted, it will go up online shortly. Work will continue to appear in the magazine until the issue's completion by date. This is published and edited solely by Tantra Bensko, MFA, author of Watching the Windows Sleep, and instructor of Experimental Fiction Writing online. No money changes hands in any way with this journal.Read More
