We’re looking for nonfiction of all varieties, including but not limited to (short) memoir, personal essays, profile/portrait essays, lyric essays, meditative essays, and journalism. Generally speaking, we want submissions that demonstrate an awareness of the connections between individual experience and that of the human condition at large. 

Additional guidelines: 

  • You’re welcome to submit up to two essays per issue (please do not submit more than two essays at a time), and, unless otherwise requested by an editor, you should wait at least three months after a submission response to submit new work
  • Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but we do ask that you notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere
  • Please wait at least three months before submitting again
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
