Nonfiction

Max words: 3000Send one piece up to 3,000 words or up to three micro-essays (750 words max) per submission period. We’re looking to publish fresh perspectives from diverse voices—essays where race, ethnicity, pop culture, class, identity, gender, humor, sexuality, diasporas, and language intersect. We want to read exceptional narratives that illuminate the range of bitter and sweet that is human existence. Regardless of topic, we’re looking for well-crafted prose that exhibits depth and nuance, a clear voice, personal reflection, and vivid scenes. Experimental and non-traditional forms welcome. We do not publish literary criticism, scholarly articles, or straight reportage. Double-spaced, 12-point standard font. Revisions may be made upon acceptance; do not withdraw and resubmit your work due to revision concerns.
