  • Poetry: submit up to three original poems. Any style; every voice!
  • Flash and Short Fiction: submit one piece. We like our stories a little gritty and under 7,000 words). If you have a longer piece in mind, tell us about it; maybe we can serialize it. 
  • Visual Art: submit up to three pieces. Anything from photography to doodles. We like our art like we like our stories.
  • Audio/Video: submit up to three recordings (these can be links to YouTube or other such sites) of spoken word or music. For short film, please submit one video (again, it can be a link). For anything else, just send us one of whatever it is!
