"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

About

“We appreciate good writing in any gWe appreciate good writing in any genre. We especially like edgy writing that offers insight into darkness. We prefer character-driven stories as opposed to plot-driven ones. We relish a piece with a great deal of heart and more than a little bit of Truth (note the capital “T”).We want to read a story that makes us feel edified or philosophical or amused or creeped out or angry or melancholy or inspired or, best yet, all of these things together.enre. We especially like edgy writing that offers insight into darkness. We prefer character-driven stories as opposed to plot-driven ones. We relish a piece with a great deal of heart and more than a little bit of Truth (note the capital “T”).We want to read a story that makes us feel edified or philosophical or amused or creeped out or angry or melancholy or inspired or, best yet, all of these things together.

We want to read a story we simply can’t put down.We generally don’t enjoy science fiction, unless a particularly well-written story rises above the ordinary to engage the heart as well as the mind. We despise cliché. We find stories that include gratuitous violence distasteful. Sexism, racism, or other forms of intolerance are intolerable to us. That said, you can certainly reveal a character through his/her prejudices; just don’t use a story to perpetuate negative stereotypes or ignorance. The world is already bursting with both.c

And now, the important stuff:

The three elements for the current submission period are: Mania, Tower, Exposure.

As you might have guessed, 3Elements Review  is a themed literary journal, hence the three elements, and all THREE elements (the specific words, Mania, Tower, Exposure—art/photography excluded) given for the submission period must be included in your story or poem for your work to be considered for publication in 3Elements Review; NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER. Synonyms of the elements will not be accepted.
