Submissions open!

Submissions are once again open! Closing date TBD. Stay tuned for more updates on issue 3, including a new publishing schedule.

Voice/Tone

Wry, blunt, and unapologetic. “We are going to make fun of you, but also ourselves.” Don’t take yourself too seriously. Question everything. Nothing is sacred, but don’t be a dick. Don’t be humble, but check your pride.

Guidelines

Words

  • Please submit writing as either a Word document or PDF.
  • Submissions can be up to 5,000 words, though 3,000 or less is preferred.
  • If submitting multiple poems for consideration, please submit them all in a single document or PDF, with each poem on its own page.

Images

  • For all images, be they photography, comics, illustrations, etc., please start by submitting up to 5 low-res files for consideration. (JPG, PNG, or the like)
  • If we accept your submission, we’ll send a Google Drive link where you can drop in a high-res (300 DPI or higher) version.
