"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



a daily online literary and culture magazine, seeks original essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, creative criticism, and reviews. Past contributors include Amber Sparks, Cari Luna, Jill Talbot, Kathleen Rooney, Tobias Carroll, Elisa Gabbert, and Wendy C. Ortiz.

Their Guidelines

“What we want to read is work grounded in a very real sense of its own world, work that bristles with richness, deeply imagined and cunningly portrayed–whatever that might look like. We’re interested in high culture, low culture, and low-high culture, whatever that means. A generosity of spirit is what we want to present.

The best way to get an idea for what we publish is, of course, to read the magazine. We’ve published new writing by Amber Sparks, Elisa Gabbert, Wendy C. Ortiz, Michael J. Seidlinger, Robert Kloss, Kathleen Rooney, Cari Luna, Juliet Escoria, Tobias Carroll, Leesa Cross-Smith, Gabriel Blackwell, Jill Talbot, and a host of others since our inception in 2013. We’re thrilled to consider yours.

Head on over to our handy submissions manager, Submittable, where you can find genre-specific guidelines and send us things.”
