Editorial Focus: 

We publish short experimental fiction paired with art. We like weird forms of literature: letters, receipts, lists, flash-fiction, and other literary absurdities. We do not publish any stanza-form poetry whatsoever.

We enjoy short but challenging pieces (FIVE PAGES OR LESS). Short-forms do not offer enough room to bore the reader, this allows the writer to be ridiculous or overly intense.

Our books are measured to fit in Levi’s back pockets and printed on high-quality, sustainable paper-stock. We are reader supported on Kickstarter and post stories on our website daily.

We DO NOT review or accept "standard" short-stories and poetry, so make it weird.
