2023 Themed Issue: The Trickster
The theme of our 2023 issue is “The Trickster,” interpreted as creatively as possible.
The Trickster: boundary crosser, shape shifter. Disruptor. Creator. Stealer of fire, holder up of mirrors. Coyote. Loki. Hermes. Bugs Bunny. The Trickster deceives you, yet reveals truth. Steals from you, yet gives you a gift.
Send us the gift of your fictions.
For a deep dive on the Trickster, we recommend Trickster Makes this World by Lewis Hyde.

Up to 7,500 words. Open to all topics, but particularly interested in essays regarding current events or literary/cultural trends; also, memoir, nonfiction, or essays regarding childhood, growing up, or aging.
Up to 5 poems or 1 longer poem. Any subject matter, but we look for strong imagery, word choices that make us do a double-take, and creative use of meter. Bonus for marrying poetry and visual art.
Any length, any topic. The kind of thing you'd write to deliver at an event like The Moth or Word.
Photography, painting, drawing, collage, or other visual art that can be photographed or scanned and rendered in color or black and white in the pages of the anthology.
