Editorial Focus

We are a non-institutional aggregator of mediocre literature. We aren't as off the wall as we are on the floor. While our editors continue their efforts to undermine each other, we're on a hunt for beavers eager to usurp the traps and give the literary world a bathetic run for its money. 

Tips From the Editor

If you run away, let the salt pour.

Be crass if you think we can't handle your genius.

If you send a fish sandwich with your hard copy submission, you will be moved to the top of the pile. However, doing so does not guarantee publication.
