We seek the lyric essay as a muse /ing, a moment in thought crystallized in language.
A moment in thought which seeks out its autonomy from its thinker and its context by simply being its own individual wholeness and reason to exist.
A moment in thought which uses poetics and logic at its convenience but has no concerns for form other than the one of its own creation.
We seek the lyric essay which lives in the inbetweenness of things, which like the ghost that it is makes us wonder is it the phantasmagoria of something other, or a haunting of our own.
We typically publish essays in the range of 500-2,000 words.
