We want your fiction, poetry, art, criticism—you name it—that pushes against complacent taxonomies and finds itself well off the beaten path. We define ourselves as an “isthmus,” a space of crossings and connectivity, between histories, articulations, media—making of these frontiers a site of play and revitalization.

A “speculative essay” concerns itself with the figurative over the literal, ambiguity over knowing, meditation over reportage. Thus we propose the lens of speculative nonfiction. With this journal we hope to begin a new dialogue about this exciting corner of literary activity; we aim to set aside that tired dog of truth vs. fiction and consider afresh the literary territories nonfiction is charting in the 21st century.
