Editorial Focus

We’re looking for work that’s bizarre, authentic, subtle, outrageous, indefinable, raw, paradoxical. We’ve got our eyes on the horizon. Send us writing that lives just between the land and the sky.

Tips From the Editor

Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.
