Submission Guidelines
Submissions are open to all writers. We seek prose (<3,000 words), flash fiction,  poetry, visual art, and photography. Our reading periods are February 1 - April 1 for the Summer issue and August 1-October 1 for the Winter Issue. 
The submission deadline for Issue No. 3 is  October 1, 2018. 
Issue No. 3  (suggested) theme:  TBA 

Flash fiction, poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, image.

We like writing that is honest, gritty, and vulnerable. We like plot, but not too much. We want characters like us -- complicated, flawed, human. Make us uncomfortable. Provoke awe. Brevity, lyric, place, experiment. Submissions are open Feburary 1 - April 1  and August - October 1

We do not read in May, June, July, November, December or January
