Publisher's description: Spittoon is an independent online literary quarterly, dedicated to the publication of quality contemporary and experimental poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction. We feature work by poets and writers, both well-known and up-and-coming. Our only goal is to publish excellent work, so there are no form or content restrictions; however, we will never accept "cookie-cutter" writers (if you have to ask what a "cookie-cutter writer" is, you probably are one). We seek original work that affects the reader in a physical and emotional way. To us, the form is as important as the content, and both form and content should work together to develop the intended effect.
Spittoon 3.3: Disintegration is live on our website! It features amazing work by Jeffrey Hecker, Carrie Bennett, Nels Hanson, Erin Lyndal Martin, Jenny Ferguson, Darren C. Demaree, Susana H. Case, Irene Turner, Jacob Schepers, Paulus Kapteyn, and Graham Tugwell.
Spittoon 3.2: Woman with Papa is live on our website! This is our largest issue ever, featuring work from such writers as Nancy Devine, Rich Ives, Ken Poyner, Matt Fee, Theresa Sotto, Maggie Glover, John M. Gist, and Valerie Hsiung, to name a few.
