Mischievous/rebellious rejection of genre, language, form, etc, or work by or about anyone living outside societal norms, whatever that may mean*
*As this marks our 15th issue, editors will be selecting, along with other writings, previously submitted work that was not a “fit” for the previous themes. In addition, we are seeking nonfiction that speaks directly to the theme of “MISFITS.”
Submissions accepted in Spanish and English
Deadline: January 31, 2014
Though you are welcome to submit your work online throughout the year, our reading periods happen in the weeks before and after each posted deadline. We publish two issues a year, and each carries a theme. (Please take a look at past issues, before submitting.) We are generally looking for work that speaks to the theme, but as stated, quality of work is the first consideration.
You should expect to hear back from us two months after the submission deadline, if not sooner.
One submission per individual, please.
Thank you so much.
