Tips From the Editor

Read and follow all our submission guidelines!

We like to be surprised; we like writing that transports us with strong voices and a sense of place. We like work that’s thoughtful and cathartic, that embraces conflict and isn’t afraid to take risks. We love pieces that blur genre boundaries.
