We are looking for original literary work of the highest quality in many styles, surprising and affecting, formally and affectively innovative. We publish both fresh and experienced voices. We welcome submissions by authors from all walks of life. We encourage writers from under-represented groups. We do place a special emphasis on writers or work connected, one way or another, to the American Midwest. We are always on lookout for vibrant visual art.
Tips From the Editor
A full read of our genre-specific guidelines is always appreciated. Please do write stories that matter. Do go beyond elaborate anecdotes in your CNF. Do surprise us with the form, diction, manner, or subject of your poetry. Do create safety. Do create danger.
