The New New

by Karl Wenclas

What does new art look like? We’re about to find out.

Avant-garde? Today there is no avant-garde. What’s called the literary avant-garde was new ninety years ago.

We seek stories that combine edge and energy with clarity and sense. Fun, fast, catchy, dramatic, with character quirks and plot hooks. Think of the reader. Envision the reading experience.

We ask writers to move outside themselves. To write what they’ve not written. What we’ve never seen. What no one has seen.

Be colorful. Be concise. Be ambitious. Give us the new new.
