  • Additional info

    Fast response: "Once submissions close, you'll hear back from us within a few weeks" Want your shitty poems - yay! Make you feel at home: cozy, meme-friendly, a sense of community, all that stuff Accept previously published: "We do not accept work that has been published by other publications. We do accept work that has been published on personal blogs, your mom’s fridge, or your Wattpad account when you were thirteen" We want your wares in the form of your absolute worst and tacky written art. No, really! Perhaps something you used to boast about on Wattpad or DeviantART accounts in your youth or (if you’re old school like some of us) in Mead notebooks you bought at your local dollar store.
