The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.

Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.
