We publish stories, poems, essays, doodles, lyrics, and art. Basically whatever you send us we'll look at. We tend towards the short so most works under 1500 words.

That's normally. Right now we're not actually taking any new work. We will open back up around May 2013 for our first Smut issue. So polish your filth and get back to us soon.

People we like: William Eggleston, Barry Hannah, Amy Hempel, Gordon Lish, Animal Collective, James Baldwin, Meg Abbott, Christine Schutt, Jim Thompson, Ross Mcelwee, Padgett Powell, James Tate, Jesmyn Ward, Charles Willeford, David Berman, Leonard Michaels, Richard Brautigan, Samuel Beckett & Water Liars (the band & the story) & William Blake

If knowing who we have published is important to you, some of them are: John Brandon, Jack Pendarvis, Deb Olin Unferth, George Singleton, Ryan Ridge, Sam Pink, Kevin Wilson, Mary Miller, Jimmy Chen, John Oliver Hodges, Rachel Glasser & Scott McClanahan.
