To submit WRITING:
⁂ We are happy to review fiction, non-fiction, poetry, prose. We do accept flash fiction, but only if we LOVE it or are asking specifically for it. (Keep your eyes peeled for our frequent flash fiction contests!)

⁂ Multiple poems should be submitted in a single attachment.
To submit VISUAL art:

We also accept submissions for our ongoing series:
⁂ Remedy № 02: Smithsonian Dialogues
Continuing on the American theme, we discovered recently that the Smithsonian Institution has a large archive of photos publicly available on their Flickr Stream. What we would like is for you to go and pick a photo and respond to it. Create a piece of visual art in response, write about it, write to it, write from its perspective! Do anything you want with it! Then send us a link to the original image along with your creation.
⁂ Remedy № 03: Arboreal Artistry
That’s right: TREES. Send us you stories, art, music, poetry, comics or what-have-you that feature or are inspired by trees. Simple. Classic.
⁂ Remedy № 01: POTUS Portraits.
