About

Mobius strives to publish challenging fiction and poetry that deals with social change as either a primary or a secondary theme. We've been asked many times what we mean when we say "social change," and we've never really been able to provide a satisfactory answer. To paraphrase Supreme Court Justice Stewart, we know a Mobius story or poem when we see one. Writing that offers some form of social commentary is a step in the right direction, but we don't necessarily look for the overtly political or even the overtly anything. First and foremost, we like good writing, with strong elements of plot and character. We like stories with impact. And we like stories that feature theme. We like poems that are unusual and entertaining. In a word, a Mobius story or poem is about SOMETHING.
