We are happy to receive submissions. We publish many of them, and if we reject them, we are nice about it and not condescending or phony-sounding. Either way, we just about always get back to you soon.

We like to publish essays about culture that are written through personal lenses. We also like comedy pieces and personal narrative and short stories.

The ideal length for us is like 500-1500 words. Considerably shorter than that has to really feel complete; considerably longer has to be, like, something that’s a really big deal.

If you have an idea or want to write something for us, send your pitch or submission to Please send it in a .doc file or Google doc or even in the body of the email, just not in a PDF. If we publish something by you, you are implicitly agreeing not to publish it anywhere else afterwards except an anthology or collection that credits us as original publisher.
