What is the focus of your journal?
The diffusion of writing in the forms it can take, whether it is poetry, fiction, nonfiction, translation, or something in between.
What defines quality writing for you?
It’s hard to say. You know it when you see it. The main thing is something polished that took time and multiple drafts to mature and grow into the final piece.

It’s important for writers to bring their individual drives and passions into a group where they can react to other ideas and experiences. Writers’ ideas can change and sharpen in collaboration.
