About

What we want

 We see you wanna know more, excellent! We want writing that doesn't really fit elsewhere, those about waking up and walking and how clouds look strange. Even a thought that just bopped across your mind.

We accept all variations of poetry, from Haikus to Limericks, free verse to rhyme, we don't mind!

(See what we did there!) We also accept micro fiction and short stories.

We want to make it blatantly clear that we will not accept or read any pieces about, homophobia, racism or any other pieces of work that are discriminatory.

Please be conscious of sending us work with violence as we will not publish poems that glorify scenes of rape, murder, or any other forms of bodily harm.

 

Baring those rules send whatever you like, you can be sure we'll give it a good look and (if you're lucky) send feedback.

But most importantly, have fun!
