Editorial Focus

We want authors compelled to write by the significance of their own experience and questions. We want authors who are interested in the sentence, how it's made, where it goes, and what it builds.

We are eclectic and personal in approach. We do not automatically exclude topics and voices that we haven't encountered before.

Tips From the Editor

Individuals may query before submitting. We do not invite agented submissions.

We hope that the nominal $10 fee and exclusive submission policy will encourage writers to choose us as carefully. Our small size makes us particularly appreciative of well-focused submissions.

We are not in general interested in illustrated books. Please query before sending one.

Submit with focused ideas about the readership for your book.
