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

experiment with you.
