Tips From the Editor

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do not publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do not publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.
