Art

Max pieces: 7

Submit a portfolio of 5-7 high-resolution pieces. Since “art” is highly subjective, we aren’t looking for anything of a specific style or medium. Just like our literary side, we want pieces that push boundaries on an emotional level–art that scatters, grounds, croons, and devastates us.

Hybrid

For hybrid submissions, submit work that redefine the meaning of literature, pieces that transcend genres and mediums, texts that aren’t afraid to experiment and break the rules. Think: a creative non-fiction piece where each word is separated by a hyphen, videopoetry, visual poetry, spoken word, interpretative dance performance of a short story, the melding of literature and music, etc. For video or audio recordings, submit work totaling no more than 5 minutes. For everything else, submit work totaling no more than 6 pages.
