Editorial Focus

We’ve never been able to answer satisfactorily what we mean by “social change.” To paraphrase Justice Stewart, we know a Mobius story or poem when we see one. We like writing that offers some form of social commentary, but we don’t necessarily favor the overtly political, or the overtly anything. We have a marked distaste for prosaic didacticism (but a weakness for prose poems).
