Genre.

Fiction, poetry, comix, video, and creative nonfiction.

Word count.

1200 - 1500 words is preferred, shorter is great, though up to 2000 words is cool if it rocks.


What we like.

We like it funny, and dark, some times inappropriate, always sparse, and not so experimental or speculative, not that we're sure what the latter means.

Payment.

None. But that doesn't mean that we don't love you. Because we do.

Reprints and simultaneous submissions.

No thank you. And sure, just let us know if the piece is accepted elsewhere.

Really final stuff.

We think that's it for now. So hit it.
As Pete Anderson says, "Fiction is like porn, we know it when we see it."
Rhyming is not a requirement.
Not to be confused with comedians, though comedians are welcome to submit.
This means mostly true, feel free to define "mostly" in anyway you wish.
