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.
