Napalm And Novocain, the third on-line literary journal in the Kind of a Hurricane Press family was designed to feature free verse poetry inspired by romance's aftermath. When a romance ends, inevitably there comes some type of fallout: the seething burn of Napalm, or the cool numbness of Novocain. What we are looking for here is poetry that quite literally drips these extremes. We want you to walk away from the pages of this journal emotionally exhausted. So all you broken bards out there, send us your pain. We want it, we need it, we crave it. Just head on over to our submissions page.
