We seek writing that will make us salivate. Words that will make our stomachs growl. We want engorging work that satiates our minds in its reflection of life. Like the title of our beloved magazine, we especially want to see the interplay between bitterness and sweetness; light and darkness, salvation and damnation. If your writing paints a dark cavern, show us the matchstick. If it speaks to the large macrocosm of life, let us see it through a pinhole lens. We want pieces that teeter; balancing on the paradoxical and undefined. We want work that we can’t pigeonhole; defying labels and societal expectations. Give us the tart wine, the honeyed poison. Our favorite part of consuming chocolate is the bitter aftertaste that follows the sweet bite. Or is it the other way around?
