If you want to publish with us, then hopefully reading what we've selected so far will inspire you, will help you find (or write) the kind of writing that we're likely to publish. But even if you don't like what we've selected so far, that's going to be helpful too -- either it'll tell you this may not be the journal for you, or, perhaps, you'll figure out how to blow us away with someone new, something in a different paradigm. Sometimes I go to readings and I'm inspired. Sometimes I go to readings and I'm bored, or irritated by a writer writing poorly, and my mind starts wandering, and I come up with something new.
Generally, if you're a writer wanting to publish in a magazine, and you haven't read at least an issue of the magazine, cover to cover (or the electronic equivalent), I think you're making a big mistake.
We open to submissions again on this Saturday, March 1st. This would be an excellent week to search through your work and decide what you're going to submit. Or perhaps write something new!
