Poetry:
 We’re looking for well-wrought poems. Intrigue us, move us, surprise us with stunning imagery, lyricism, soundplay, structure. Disturb our well-trod patterns of thought.

Prose Poems are pure creation, the playful and daring edge of poetry. The writer must provide powerful lyrical language and, above all, a truthful, commanding voice.

Short Stories must draw in the reader with their depth, clarity and voice. Elements of a short fiction story include characterization, conflict and change. Fiction of under 1500 words is welcome, but must revolve around a central story core. Keep the writing tight and concise, with a powerful, authentic voice.

The Creative Nonfiction we publish has a moving inner voice. It holds to the same standards as other literary forms while remaining grounded in fact. As author John McPhee says, “Creative nonfiction is not making something up but making the most of what you have.”
