Consider this the backlash against the all-too-common workshop buzzword, "stakes."
This website is for writing that is navel-gazing, frivolous, better saved for your diary or your Twitter feed or oh god, anywhere but here, nobody cares, what are you, 13?
There are some people who seem to think there's already enough literature in the world, that as writers we have an obligation to bottle it all up until we have something Meaningful and Important to say about a topic that will Change The World. I made this website because I don't agree with those people.
No restrictions on form or genre, I just want to read something cool. Poetry, fiction, rants, diary entries, movie reviews, weird manifestos. Hit me.
If you sometimes scroll through Twitter and see everyone talking about Literature when you would rather talk about LITERATURE, I want to hear from you.
If you're cringe, I want to hear from you.
If you often wonder if your writing is real writing, I want to hear from you.
If you think nobody writing these little submission calls actually wants to hear from you, I want to hear from you.
