We're not here to tell you what to write. We're just here to tell you how we operate.

Here are the factors we consider for each piece

that comes across our desk:

  • Purpose

    • We want to walk away with something

  • Poignancy

    • We want work that evokes emotion or thought, and resonates

  • Relevancy

    • We want work that speaks to the theme and our new adult audience

We love new and diverse voices and perspectives.

We love weird, experimental, avant garde shit.

We love unflinching honesty and a deep reverence for the intersection of language and the human condition.

We are writers and artists ourselves: we understand that your work is a part of you, and we treat it as such. 

How we digest your work



  • All pieces should be in one word document

  • The title of that document should be your first and last name

  • Attach the document to your email


  • Each image should be titled: your first & last name, title of piece.

  • Attach all images of art to the email or send a zip file

  • Please note that we can only accept high-resolution images

The subject line of the email should include your first and last name + theme indicator, which is listed in the call for subs
