  • Additional info

    We hope that when you read Epiphany, you'll get a sense of the great variety of stories, poems, essays, and genre-bending work that we like, and the recurring themes to which we keep returning. We hope that you'll enjoy and connect with the work of your fellow writers, and that you'll feel you're a valued part of our community, rather than just another lonely writer sending your beloved work out into some unsympathetic void. We hope you'll see what makes us different. We hope you'll feel you have a stake in our endeavor. So send us your best work. Work that both resists and embraces language. Work that draws connections where we never thought to look. Work that evokes or examines or simply mirrors for us this strange condition of being human. Fill us up; leave us wondering. We pay $25 for flash fiction that we publish online. We pay $25 for "What We're Reading Now" essays that we publish online.
