we want ur experimental poetics, sonic explorations, literary prose, and absurdist rants. we want ur angry essays, aesthetic criticisms, and a transcription of your recent research wormhole. we want ur investigative findings and archival unearthings. we want features on artists you love, interviews with people you love, and reviews on books you love. we want ur illustration, comics, visual art, paintings, films, mixed-media, sculpture, installation art. we want ur full-moon purge.
we don't have deadlines or a timeline. we ride the wave of time, birthing publications when ripe.
