Upon receiving such submissions, we reserve the right to ban you permanently from submitting to our magazine. · We’re sure AI is helpful in many ways but this space is about original creativity and so we won’t publish AI-generated work. · Our readers are (hopefully) mature adults. Eroticism/sensuality in literature and art is wonderful, but we will reject pornographic work. · Hit us with experimental themes, and difficult subject matters. As such, your work may be political but we don’t want to be preached at. · While we love work that brings forth your culture, we don’t want religious work intended to proselytize.
