About

Our general aesthetic is that we are looking for stories that we will love, as readers ourselves. We've said in the past that we tend to like quirky stories with subjects like truck driving and mathematics and vagabonding but not really stories that rely too heavily on their quirkiness. We like stories with humor but are not looking for humor pieces. At one point a reader summed up a couple of our stories as "humorous but engaging" and we like how that sounds. Another reader said "literary but not stuffy". We realize no one is trying to do stuffy but, still, we think it was a good assessment. Mostly, we just want to get excited about your story as a reader and hope you will send your best work.
