POST(blank) is a bilingual word-art publication, in which we curate a dialogue between the visual and literary arts. We look for any works that either attempt to, and can be used to, create a dialogue between these two media.

Take a careful look at our submission guidelines and attempt to follow the theme. However, DO NOT be afraid to freely interpret the theme in any way that makes sense to you. We are looking for all people willing to help us fully dissect every possibility available in each issue's theme.

indicia seeks to showcase a dynamic collage of passionate and profound voices hungry to produce art and write primarily in the English language. indicia enjoys feeling out the lengths to which language can be stretched, whether to convey a feeling, an experience, a humorous observation, a dire lesson, or whatever else a literary spirit needs to say.

We share work that stems from a sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity, and believe that a publication so informed acts as a cultural balm against the literal-minded, commercially-driven objectives of modern media.

We're focused on showcasing diverse writers because we want to give a platform for stories told from new perspectives, particularly if they are told by marginalized voices. We're not concerned with credentials in terms of prior publications or degrees. Instead, we look for quality writing that stands out, whether it's from a seasoned author or emerging writer.

We recommend reading stories that we have already published to get a feel for the type of narratives we prefer. We also really appreciate crisp, well-revised manuscripts. Other than that, the best way to impress us is by submitting a unique story that leaves a lasting impression.

Please send us your most vulnerable, least self-aggrandizing work. Please don't aim to make friends. Please don't be reductive. Please be hilarious and/or heartbreaking.
