We publish 1-2 print issues and 2 online issues per year.
Read our credo! We’re looking for manifestos, comic monologues, plays and performance texts, deep and heart-wrenching poems and essays, stories that are full of story, and experimental and hybrid work that lingers inside the mind and body longer than we expected. We also accept critical reviews, interviews with writers and artists, and critical-thought papers. We love photographs and art that capture the diversity of our community and that speak in dialogue with our credo.
