Blotterature's mission is to merge the creative academia with the underground, as there is value in both sides of the spectrum. We seek the nontraditional mixed with craft, detail, and process. Well-developed with an edge. Regionalism with a voice. Something with political intentions or just there to entertain. Thought-out. Thrilling. Intelligent.
