“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

We are a journal of print poetry and prose dedicated to emerging writers and their words now in our 2nd year of publication. We aim to publish writers who are currently emerging on the literary scene. We recognize how hard it can be to get that first publishing credit and hope to be a foundation for the writers seeking to be published here.

We love, prefer free verse and flash fiction–words with passion, voice, and place. We look for succinct images and dialogue that linger, narrative that we can take with us to bed at night, ideas used in magnificent ways. Bring us your castles.

Reading periods are scheduled from August 1st to October 1st. We will feature an annual print issue in December. We currently provide one contributor copy as payment to our contributors.
