Editorial Focus

We’re big readers, so we admire pieces that make the old new. We also dig aesthetic competence and a knowledge of genre and literary tradition. That said, we admire experimentation and blurred genres as well, so long as the writer brings the heat.

Tips From the Editor

Our only criteria for poetry or micro prose: your writing is alive on the page, has urgency and has something at stake.
