Fiction: We’re looking for compelling characters, plots that surprise us, narratives that move us, stories that have something new to say.

Poetry: We love poems that are lyrical without being overwrought, and are profound without being pretentious. We look for honesty of emotion, and images that arrest us.

Non-Fiction: We are looking for real-life experiences told as riveting narratives with distinct voices. We publish essays that feel artful and true.

Confront THAT, a whirlwind of poetry, prose, creative nonfiction, and visuals to entertain and amaze. THAT tickles the curiosity and baffles expectations. THAT looks into dark closets and gazes, slack-jawed, at the stars. THAT surprises and satisfies. Be prepared for the mysterious and the wonderful.

Take a stroll through our pages, virtual or real, before submitting. There's a sensibility that runs through the poetry, prose, and visuals that we try to cultivate, and material that reflects that insightful and sometimes strange perspective is particularly welcomed.

We’re looking for work that’s bizarre, authentic, subtle, outrageous, indefinable, raw, paradoxical. We’ve got our eyes on the horizon. Send us writing that lives just between the land and the sky.

Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.

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.

TL;DR: unconventional, genre-expanding art/lit so that we might pour out the branded-content-over-saturated spaces of our lives and refill them with the avant garde. New voices, new literature. TRUE LIVING, DOCUMENTED RELENTLESSLY

The more out-of-the-box the submission is, the better. TL;DR is dedicated to literature that expands literature and challenges pre-concieved notions about the boxes we write and creatively present our documented realities and histories in.
