Editorial Focus

Waxing & Waning is a literary journal that seeks what’s on the fringe. Whatever is deep and true. The moon represents this idea: what is dark, what is brooding, what is wild. We want to feed the beast in you, the one buried beneath layers of manners and anxiety and Banana Republic. Work submitted to Waxing & Waning should be honest and well executed. It should scream coherently; it should drag something out of us that we haven’t seen before; it should rip out our black hearts and show them to us. Bring us the work everyone else (including you) is afraid of.

Tips From the Editor

Proper manuscript format will get you bonus points. If your fiction/creative nonfiction is longer than 5,000 words, it must merit the space it will take. For poetry, we're already a little skeptical about your Howl-long epic.
