was founded on the idea that difference should be embraced, not condemned. In writing, we enjoy the unusual. We want to be surprised. We appreciate humor, but that doesn’t only mean light-hearted and goofy. Feel free to go dark. Get serious, just do it in a form or from a perspective we don’t see very often. Cross genre lines and experiment. Send us the work you don’t know how to define.

Submitting guidelines:
  • Please only submit one item per category at a time (except for poetry, to which you may submit three poems at a time) and no more than three items per category per submission period (again, except for poetry).
  • Please use 12-point font and, for prose, double-space the text.
  • Please include the word count in your cover letter and the document itself.
  • We allow simultaneous submissions as long as you notify us right away if your work is accepted elsewhere.
  • We prefer previously unpublished work, but will occasionally accept published work if it is an exceptionally good fit. If you work has been previously published, tell us in the cover letter.
