Hey everyone — please forward this far and wide.
And just in case it isn’t 100% clear what I mean by “these are not guidelines, the list of things we’re open to is meant to expand rather than limit possibilities. I wanted to explicitly name some stuff people might be reluctant to send because most places don’t want to see it. But I also expect to see shit that isn’t on this list.
Graphic sex and violence, and/or the grotesque. Hmm. I might have some stuff…
