Tips From the Editor
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.
