submission guidelines
Short stories, novel excerpts, dreams, thoughts, scribblings...
I am after experimental fiction, non-genre, erotica, horror, philosophical, noir, crime, hard-boiled, surreal.
50 - 3,000 words - but it is my experience that shorter fictions works better on the net, so I will usually give priority to those stories at the lower end of the word limit.
Please send no more than two works of fiction at a time.
Please check out the current theme. I WILL accept non-themed fiction, as long as it works within the isms (Surrealism/Expressionism/Existentialism) somehow.

Please send no more than 3 poems at a time.
There is no limit to line length and prose poems are welcome.

Articles/features which are arts-related, for instance, on a particular author or specific art-movement. Also, journal excerpts and articles on personal writing experiences.
Any response to previous work published in this zine can be emailed to me and may appear in the next issue, with the writer's permission.
