  • Additional info

    *We aim to get back to every submission within two months from the deadline. Each issue will be themed. We set themes by the art, life, and lusts that have gripped our own minds and given our tongues friction burns. We have no genre expectations, just send us something that is utterly you – from beauty to beast, creative non-fiction to allegorical fairy tales – we just want to revel in the potency of your voice. We’re trying to do things differently; we’d appreciate it if you did too. Let your cape dance.
