Tips From the Editor
We seek well-written, engaging works of prose with a penchant for language. Writing which has been crafted with care and precision; which attends to detail and astonishes sensibility. Narratives which provoke and pursue. We wish to be transported, rearranged and awakened; to feel the weight of every word. We want distinct visions rendered in piercing prose. Storytelling which is thoughtfully wrought and delicately vibrant—which throbs the gut and burns the throat; which brings the peculiar, the off-angles and edges, to light; which leave us breathless and aching, shivering with the resplendent, churning pulse of human experience.
