TXTOBJX (txtobjx.com) is an experimental literary site that publishes text objects—fragmentary, abbreviated, emergent writing that falls somewhere between prose and poetry. A text object might take the shape of a microfable, a prose sketch, a list, or an aphorism. It can be a piece of episodic surrealism or an artful misremembrance. It can be a set of cryptic instructions, or a description of a real or imagined phenomenon. Ideally, however, its controlled spontaneity distinguishes it from the highly resolute craft and polish of its cousin forms.
Tips From the Editor
To the extent that TXTOBJX has a particular aesthetic bandwidth, its editorial tastes favor text objects that have a vital tension, and a perhaps paradoxical sense of unity in their fragmentedness that, ultimately, implicates or invokes a broader truth.
