We seek outsider, clout-less, non-standard work that gleams. We want to celebrate our contributors; both the artist and their art. For us, that means that upon publication, your submissions will appear in a journal that has been conceived by a team of caring and meticulous editors; it will look good. Ultimately, our goal is to publish catalysts of transition for the observer, to lull, or to instigate. We want work that encourages the appreciation of craft and the desire to create. Please see visit our website for our current Call for Submissions and submission guidelines:

  • The Experiment Will Not Be Bound: Experimental Anthology, Peter Campion, ed.

  • Deadline info Deadline: March 14, 2021
  • Genre Fiction, Poetry, Cross-genre, Comics
  • Type Anthology

This project reflects current times: it is a political act, and bold voices in new forms will ignite it. We are most interested in: What does America mean now — and what forms can our voices take today? Show us experimental writing that confronts the hard truths of America across identities, generations, communities, cultures, borders. Literary experiments from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented communities hold particular power in making this anthology relevant. We will challenge the traditional anthology form too, experimenting with how the book can be (un)bound, (re)ordered, (re)read, and (co)shared. Authors selected will be paid for their work.
