WHAT TO SEND
Provocative works that explore any facet of life: that which is obvious, or even just a moment that spans no more than three seconds. Sociological criticism/assessment; philosophy, physics; interesting use of language (within reason). We enjoy wit, and clever pieces that play on words, while keeping focus on the storyline.
In your cover letter, keep it brief – but include a short, general bio. We are curious about previous publication credits.
The subject heading of your email should include the word "submission". Do not use weird fonts or formatting. Times and Arial work just fine. All submissions must be sent as an attachment, in MS Word format. Do not paste your submissions into the body of your email. Simultaneous submissions are fine – just let us know if your work is going to be published elsewhere. All submissions must include your name, the work’s title, your phone number, email address.
Submit 3 – 7 poems at a time. One submission batch per issue please. Poetry must be intelligent and intelligible. We don't want obscure. And we don't want trivial. Clear and clever wordplay with a focused through-line is what we’re looking for.
SHORT FICTION GUIDELINES
Submissions should be a maximum of 4,500 words, but as prime time television begins at 7 p.m. or so, we encourage pieces to be under 2,000 words.
VISUAL ART GUIDELINES
Images should be no larger than 750 K – and that’s for a very large image, around 500 pixels square. Attach images in .JPEG format to your email.
ESSAYS AND EDITORIALS
Submissions should not exceed 3,000 words. Subject matter: Philosophical inquiries, sociological criticism, music, psychology, science-related. No politics. But if you’re a socialist or a communist, please indicate this in your submission, and please include your address and phone number – so we can hunt you down and lynch you.
