We most enjoy writing that comes from experience, is well-crafted, lyrical, distinctive, and accessible. Language is important. We like work that takes risks, that is morally unflinching, not for the sake of spectacle but for some daunting and tender rendering of truth. That is not to say we don’t also admire subtlety and quieter pieces of work. We love those, too. Humor as well. Just make it matter. changesevenmag.com
