escarp explores the potential for super-brief literatures, via the immediacy of text-messages, to provide both writers and the general public with a literary appetizer--a ringing, vibrating love-note from the world of words.
**escarp does NOT accept submissions via postal mail or e-mail.** **Submissions MUST come through our Twitter account and MUST be less than 140 characters.** **Click the submission guidelines link above for more.** Because we usually respond within 48 hours, we don't accept simultaneous submissions. The length restrictions of SMS/Twitter make it impossible for us to consider work which doesn't fit our guidelines. Despite the brevity of the medium, drafts rarely pass through unscathed. Well-considered work only, please.
