Editorial Focus

We look for a story to tell us something universal about the human condition. Just because our theme is "recovery" doesn't mean that all of what we publish is about successful recovery. Often it's not the recovery story that says the most about the process of recovering. We like work that shows heart and depth of character.

Tips From the Editor

I look for interesting language. Word plays, lyricism, music, these are all very important to me. And bear in mind that when I say "music," that doesn't mean only classical. Rock and roll, punk, hip-hop--these are music, too. A story can be hard-hitting and gritty and still have music to the words.
