Tips From the Editor

Our taste is deeply varied: we're moved by the succinct and by the strange, by the ethereal and by the deep. We enjoy reading work that is witty and work that is moving . . . and especially work that's both. We like playful and challenging - and we want to see things that are new to our eyes. In other words, we're open to any and many styles - what matters most is that your work is surprising, thoughtful, complex.
