    1. No. We’re still a fledgling outfit, putting down a foundation for future growth. For the foreseeable future we believe it’ll be better for both ourselves and the writers we publish for us to concentrate all time and limited resources on promotion– getting word out about both our site and the “pop-lit” writers we publish. Establishing our brand AND the names of writers. Our objective will be to establish a circle of a dozen or two writers, whose work best fits our intended model, and regularly or at least intermittently publish and promote those writers. History in endeavor after endeavor shows this is the path to take if you want to breakthrough and achieve consciousness in the greater culture. We’re very ambitious, and we’re looking for at least a few very ambitious writers willing to be part of this. The question will become at some point: what’s the writer’s goal?

      We need better, punchier, more readable writers than the stodgy mainstream variety, but we also seek a few faces and striking personas to go along with that writing.

      We hope this answers your question!
