Submissions open!

Submissions are once again open! The theme for this issue is HOW TO BE WRONG.

Closing date is April 28th.


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



  • 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.


  • 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.
  • For comics, we are looking for anything from a single page to a long story. For your initial submission, however, please submit only the first 5 pages.


  • Have a recurring section idea? Want us to feature your music or video game? Awesome!
