Plume

A provisional indication of our tastes – “what we are looking for” — may be inferred from the quoted passages (which will change often):  a sense of the uncanny, foremost, and of the fineness of language, the huge absences to which it points and partakes of, and the urgency and permanence of its state of departure — the coattails forever –just now—disappearing around the corner.

the prompt

As writers and instructors of writing, we have all found ourselves with work that came from workshops, random exercises, and desperate attempts to find our voices. Unfortunately, anything that looks too much like it came from an exercise, prompt, or other such “mechanical” source gets relegated by editors to that pile with a sticky note on top that says “too workshoppy.” That is why we created the prompt. The prompt is the place for all levels of writers to have an opportunity to publish, as well as for a community of writers to find new ways to expand creative writing horizons.

Quarterly West

Quarterly West looks for writing that is: Exciting. Challenging. Risky. Unpredictable. And Different. I could say what different means, but then we might receive a slew of submissions that are all different in the same way. Different will be victim to form—to the “fragment sentence,” “non-linear plot,” and “hybrid genre”. Different will be slave to space, time, story and moment. This does not seem the way to open the door for Different.

We look for a story to tell us something universal about the human condition. Just because our theme is "recovery" doesn't mean that all of what we publish is about successful recovery.
