We seek in-your-face fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction pieces that are experimental, gut-wrenching, terrifying, stultifying, breakneck speed, sex-driven, whooshing out, (and secretive).

Think Ice Capades on Acid. Think January in June. Think Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.

A world turned upside down? Yes, that is (b)OINK.

Since we are still considered a newish zine, we ask previous contributors to wait at least six months before submitting again. However, submissions to a different category are okay and will be considered.

Please limit your submission to one category per month. Don't have us make the decision for you.

We do not accept previously published work. 

Simultaneous submissions are not our preference, but allowed.

All rights revert to author upon publication. 

We want: rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, agents, bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglars, horse thieves, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, sh**-kickers, and Methodists! (Thanks to Hedley Lamarr from Blazing Saddles.)
