Editorial Focus

We are looking for poems that vault us to a new level of understanding an individual's true perception, and not one that falls under the customs of a dictated language which only obeys the known, the understood and the repetitive. Be imaginative, not fantastical which is never the same.

Tips From the Editor

We prefer shorter poems, one or two pages, and for short fiction we will only consider pieces at or below 2,500 words. We are looking for imaginative work, work that tries to interpret the unknown and does not settle in the copmplacency of ordinary, repetitive language. If you are submitting from overseas, or do not reside in the U.S., we accept e-mail submissions.
