We are interested in nonfiction in any form, though we rarely publish academic writing or straight reportage. We welcome memoir, personal essay, lyric and experimental work, hybrid forms, new journalism, and non-academic cultural criticism. And while we are open to all aesthetic and stylistic approaches, we especially value writing that is fresh, honest, self-aware, and well-expressed. We try to respond to submissions within four months, though it sometimes takes longer, and we generally don't publish work over 6,000 words. All nonfiction submissions should be double-spaced.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we ask that you notify us of
this at the time of submission. Multiple submissions are not accepted and will
not be read or responded to; please wait until you receive a response from us
before submitting again.
