We are not a food magazine. We do not want food-centric or themed submissions. We are a literary magazine. But we are tied to food in a way.
A feast is something held by humans for millennia, throughout our terms of evolution, even. A feast is excess. Modesty. Façade. Gladness. Celebration. Even silence that’s a measure of closeness or distance. Mourning.
Food is the first gift we receive. And at feasts, stories are told. Songs recited. Prayers said. Family tensions spewed. Admittances of infidelity. Demands for divorce. Coming outs. And more.
Since our ancestors roamed the world hunting for new horizons; we have always gathered around a hearth to share a meal. Sometimes we’d run into strangers. And share.
We are not a food magazine or recipe outlet. We are about literary work in its 3 main forms. We are a humble, paying market. We do not have fees. Yet. When we do contests and contributor pay outs, we match a percent of the winnings and donate it to a charity or nonprofit somehow tied to food or nourishment. We are an annual, online magazine for now.
We DO accept donations for our work and cause. We are volunteer staffed 100%. Email us at the address listed below for colin.
We are an annual online magazine that publishes poetry, fiction, and nonfiction as well as art.
We are incorporating to become a small press. We run as a not-for-profit until we transition to an official nonprofit small press.
We only use PayPal and Venmo for contributor payouts at this time.
