Doubly Mad takes its title from the poem "Listening" by Robert Bly: "because the world is mad, / the only way through the world is to learn the arts / and double the madness." We are interested in a broad range of writing, including essays on social-political themes. We are interested not only in emotionally powerful work, but work that challenges us to think, and draws into question our society's shibboleths.
