TXTOBJX is now open for submissions. TXTOBJX (txtobjx.com) is an experimental literary site that publishes text objects—fragmentary, abbreviated, emergent writing that falls somewhere between prose and poetry. A text object might take the shape of a micro-fable, a prose sketch, a list, or an aphorism. It can be a piece of episodic surrealism or an artful misremembrance. It can be a set of cryptic instructions, or a description of a real or imagined phenomenon. Ideally, however, its controlled spontaneity distinguishes it from the highly resolute craft and polish of its cousin forms. Submissions: .
