  • Additional info

    if you’re looking for a home for a sonnet or a realist short story, or any piece that happens to wear a traditional outfit, we want to see it If the writing is fresh, artful, and engaging, if we’re moved (to cry, to clench a fist, to laugh), we want it We will not consider any submission that includes identifying information anywhere in the piece, including in the name of your file or any headers or footers. We welcome simultaneous submissions and ask only that you withdraw your piece immediately, through Submittable, if it is accepted elsewhere. We publish three short pieces of original written work on the first of the month (September through May), each presented with two companions to the publication. The companion pieces are items chosen by the editors (possibilities include visual art, photo, video, or quotation) or solicited (a piece of art created by a colleague in reaction to the publication, or the answer to an author question posed by the editors)
