Editorial Focus: 

We are a journal of print poetry and prose dedicated to emerging writers and their words now in our 2nd year of publication. We aim to publish writers who are currently emerging on the literary scene. We recognize how hard it can be to get that first publishing credit and hope to be a foundation for the writers seeking to be published here.

We love, prefer free verse and flash fiction–words with passion, voice, and place. We look for succinct images and dialogue that linger, narrative that we can take with us to bed at night, ideas used in magnificent ways. Bring us your castles.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please adhere to the guidelines and never be afraid to submit anything.
