Not Top Two, see how it pays to show up late and look fabulous? Do you hear the quartet, playing your song?

Submissions for an anthology, Out of Many, Multiplicity and Divisions in America Today, is open and “will showcase emerging writers for an emerging generation.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we must be notified immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Send up to 5 pages of poetry or prose pieces no longer than 1500 words (but think shorter! micro! prose poetry).
