We're looking for your honest, moving, and memorable nonfiction. Your lyric essays, your braided essays, language-driven shorts, your urgent reflections, your image-obsessed micros. We're up for writing that grabs hold of us from the first sentence and expands what nonfiction can do. (Under 6,000 words, ideally.)

We're looking for your thrilling, moving, and memorable fiction. Your riveting plots, your character-driven shorts, your image-driven flash,  your language-obsessed micros. We're up for writing that grabs hold of us from the first sentence and expands what short stories can do. (Under 6,000 words, ideally.)

We're looking for poetry that arrests us with its formal inventiveness, its haunting or playful imagery, its investment in the rhythm of each  line and stanza. Send us up to five poems in a single document. We're interested in featuring folios of poetry in addition to individual poems.

For Issue 19, we'd love to see your original artwork. We're excited about all visual media that reads well in the digital space. We'd love to consider your drawings, paintings, photography, and mixed media, and we are especially interested in short graphic narratives and comics.

We love short plays, one acts, riveting scenes, tiny musicals, and all drama that makes characters and their actions and dialogue utterly visual and necessary. Think Annie Baker, Lynn Nottage, and Michael R. Jackson. (We do not publish full-length plays.)
