We do not seek scholarly analyses or angst-driven diary entries; nor do we wish to be entertained by martians, demons, ghosts, or fairy godmothers. Those stories have a place, but it’s not here.

Whether they hold MFAs or are ditch diggers is of little concern, so long as the words seem to have clawed their way onto the page, defying the will of the author, with little regard for sleep, safety or comfort.
