Hello, my name's Mandy and I'm new. I'm a senior english major at UnivMaryWash. I love to write; primarily poetry but also short stories. I'm twenty-one and am about to graduate. I love drinking excessive amounts of strong black tea, sitting by rivers, musing, and spending time with those whom I love.
FIRST, here is one of my more recent poems ...


"Altamont"
They were lined up like they were waiting for pergatory or something, like he's going to deliver them something other than a coupon for condoms.

They moved in waves like masses; schools of vague-faced fish. Bodies pushed into another like the air-choked throats of flailing thrashing netted fish.

Outside the sealed gates are cheeks pushed flat against glass. and I sit oppressed with a voice worth nothing; sitting impressed, mouth agape in a stupor at the scripts these mechanical lips flaunt.

and I wonder if the frantic mob will trip up enough to be the next Altamont.


but also, I'd like to invite all of you to submit to my university sponsored literary journal! It's an online journal so it will be viewable to all of you--who I hope will contribute so you can see your own work published online!

Poetry? Fiction? Non-fiction? Flash prose? Essays? Photography? Stuio art? Digital art? Spoken word? Music? Instrumental? Short films? Interpretive dance?

We literally want it ALL! The official deadline is March 20th, but don't be afraid to submit late. We're very forgiving and want as much as possible.

We'd be sooo happy and sooo honored to feature your work!
