Armchair/Shotgun

At Armchair/Shotgun, we do not care about your bio. We read all submissions anonymously, and conceal even an author’s name until a piece has been selected for publication. We feel that good writing does not know one MFA program from another. It does not know a Ph.D. from a high school drop-out. Good writing knows only story. We accept poetry, fiction, non-fiction and visual arts submissions for publication on real honest-to-goodness paper.
