I picked up a copy of this magazine and didn’t put it down until I had finished the entire copy. Have you read it? Short stories, essays, interviews, poetry and letters all written with depth, humor, and insight. They don’t want opinion pieces or academia. The best thing is they purchase one-time rights, which means you can sell them something you may have sold before.
One section is devoted to Readers Write, which asks “readers to address subjects on which they’re the only authorities. Topics are intentionally broad in order to give room for expression.”
