In the new TRoL there will be: ● No tedious stories of academic life ● No routine log-rolling mutual admiration from the iniquitous MFA and Workshop factories ● No contributions from those on lists of the “best” such-and-such ● No criticism from critics we don't ever read ● No “Insider” games of praise or blame ● No self-reproducing interns reading submissions

Super Arrow is a biannual online journal for experiments in writing and art. Our publication is designed for community and creative risk. The name of the journal is a partial english-to-english homophonic transliteration of "supererogatory," or, beyond what is required. We mean this, whatever that means to you.

Tips From the Editor:

We look for writing that is surprisingly exceptional, not necessarily the in your face brilliance, but the kind of writing that surprises you with story and a clear focus and voice. We love new writers, adore established writers, and embrace the I've-Never-Done-This-Before writers. If you have a story, a poem, an essay, or something that you haven't quite classified yet, but you think it could stand up to being read, then please submit it. Our staff loves to read!

Tips From the Editor: 

Please do include your name, number, and e-mail; please do submit YOUR OWN ORIGINAL UNPUBLISHED WORK; please do keep your cover letter short and sweet. Please don't submit the same piece multiple times; please don't forget if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
