NONFICTION & LITERARY EPHEMERA
  • Try us. If it’s not strictly prose, send us a query or a sample.
  • So far, we really like this and this and this.
GRITTY BITS & BOBS
  • By submitting to us, you grant us first electronic rights and non-exclusive archival rights.
  • All submissions remain the intellectual property of the artist. Rights revert to author upon publication.
  • We’d love if you’d credit us if your work first appeared here.
  • Work previously published in print only welcome if in no violation of original rights.
  • You’ll feel really good if you check out these kick-ass authors.
