Editorial Focus: 

Literary publishing, multimedia arts, psychonautics; Anobium strives to give writers a place to send their writing ‒ experimental and hybrid writing generally pishaw’d by the Academic scene (which has somehow gotten its tendrils stuck around the many boughs of Literature per se) ‒ get it read, and possibly get it published. Simple.

Tips From the Editor: 

We want your prose and poetry. Essays, fictions, poems, prayers, paeans, incantations. Anything and everything. We want things that say something, rather than things that talk about saying something. Think Esoteric. Psychedlic. Existential. Strange. Fantastic. Surreal. Sub-real. Agnostic. Insectile. We aren’t strict on word counts. Most of the prose pieces we accept are between 200-1,500 words. Most poems we like are no longer than 30ish lines. Of course, in this economy, we can fudge the numbers.
