Editorial Focus: 

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Please do include your name, number, and e-mail; please do submit YOUR OWN ORIGINAL UNPUBLISHED WORK; please do keep your cover letter short and sweet.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.
