We’re here to observe the strange color of the sky and how some of the trees fail to look majestic. There’s beauty in all the weird and wild and we’re ready to wade into the water surrounded by the strange wood and words that you’re willing to give. So give us your strange, your weird. Give me the writers that have yet to have found their place to call home.

To get a feeling for the work we publish, we encourage you to consult the issues available on our website. When you feel ready, please read our submission guidelines and then send us your best work, along with a third-person bio of 100 words or less.

How can a poem reveal an observation, emotion, or experience in a new or unique way? How can a story change a reader’s way of thinking? We want stories that open our minds to new possibilities.
