Tips From the Editor: 

We like avant-garde writing, yet not for its own sake. We aren’t looking for genre work, but are willing to delve into surrealist territory. We like to be challenged, not scolded. We’re fans of humor that doesn’t try too hard, and admire dark depictions that aren’t overwrought or excessively violent. We appreciate a mature dynamism in language and subject matter. Above all, we seek skillful navigation across arresting narrative waters.
