Submission Guidelines
Submissions are open to all writers, from all places. We seek prose (<3,000 words), flash fiction,  poetry, visual art, and photography. 

Our reading periods are February 1 - April 1 for the Summer
issue and August 1-October 1 for the Winter Issue. 

The submission deadline for Issue No. 2 is April 1, 2018. 

Issue No. 2  (suggested) theme:  
Summer Haunts  / Summer Hauntings.

In addition to publishing emerging and established writers and artists the world over, each issue will also feature work from writers or artists with a history in New Mexico.  



We like writing that is honest, gritty, and vulnerable. We like plot, but not too much. We want characters like us -- complicated, flawed, human. Make us uncomfortable. Provoke awe.
