Ends on October 1, 2017

Submissions are open July-October and January-April. We publish poetry, essays, images, multimedia, hybrid, cross-, multi-, and post-genre work annually in December and June. We also hold an annual summer chapbook contest judged by the editorial board.

Current Reading Period: July 1 - October 31, 2017

We are interested in work that does not sit comfortably inside genre labels—work that bends or pushes against traditional limitations; that mixes, blends, and steps outside of the normal bounds.

The best way to understand what we're looking for is to read our Special Feature: Hybrid Forms & the Post-Genre Approach.

  • Submit your work as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file and title the document with your name.
  • You may submit 3-5 shorter pieces or 1 longer piece, max. length 15 pages. Include all pieces in one document.
  • For visual work, title the file with your name and upload as a .jpg or .pdf. For video pieces, attach a link and/or embed code.
  • If your submission does not fit into the categorical boundaries of "word" or "image" and there's no way to put it through Submittable, query us. We'd like to experiment with you.
  • Attach a brief cover letter including a bio.
  • Simultaneous submissions are fine; we ask that you let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.
  • If you have already been published by us, please wait one year before submitting again to a regular issue. 
  • We acquire first rights (which revert back to you upon publication) and request acknowledgement in subsequent publications.
