We are looking for essays that experiment, take formal risks and let the language lead. This includes essays of all sorts—from personal essay to flash nonfiction and hybrid works—but we especially enjoy a clear voice, genre-bending sensibilities, surprising language, and attention to the twists and turns of intellection. In any case, we are looking for a compelling narrative that makes us think. We hope to include both established and new voices in our pages, including voices that are historically underrepresented.
Please do not submit works longer than 5,000 words. We rarely publish academic or scholarly articles, but if you’ve got a piece of auto-theory on your hands, send it our way!
We also encourage you to look through our recent online issues to get a sense of what we like to publish. Thank you for your submissions—we look forward to reading your work. (Please attach your work as a .doc or .docx file.)
