Tips From the Editor

Please refer to our website to view our submission guidelines in their entirety. 

Each issue begins with the posting of three elements, and ends with a journal filled with the imaginative ways in which each writer and artist transformed those elements. We exist to inspire creativity. We, as well as our readers, thoroughly enjoy the journey on which each piece takes us, as no one story or poem is ever the same.
