I have always understood the struggles of the writing life—the driving artist, aspiring toward publication. To get your work out there, really looked at, truly noticed, takes so much heart and effort and patience and resilience. I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not your demographics, who you know, where you come from, or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established.
