"Never tell one story. Always add a second. That way, the first one won't fall over."
Our focus: Social and political commentaries; book, film and music reviews; poetry and humor; with a strong emphasis on human needs rather than people's greed -- and the desire, indeed the ardent obligation, to change a system based on profits, exploitation, pilfering, and destruction. We are an independent publication, affiliated with no political party or organization. We offer our collective work and recruit volunteers, occasional contributors, regular columnists and poets without regard to race, color, sex, religion, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, or political affiliation.
Length of Work: Up to 2,000 words (although exceptional writing of any length will be considered and may be published in multiple parts).
Editing: The Publisher shall edit the Work as may be required, particularly with regard to grammar, punctuation, spelling, unnecessary repetition, sequence, clarity and house style. Issues such as accuracy of factual content, contradictions, and other major changes considered necessary, shall first be discussed with the Author.
