We accept all printable forms of submissions, including illustration, fiction, personal essay, poetry, photography, and any other medium a contributor can think of to best express their deepest emotions. We believe very strongly that the more we learn about each other, the more we learn about ourselves, and the more we can coexist in harmony. We are a feminist, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ friendly, anti-racist, anti-colonial publication. We print three times yearly along with special edition mini-zines periodically.
