FICTION: Make it hurt, then make it heal. Or don't. Whatever you do, do it more than anyone else. Hard, soft. Thrilling, boring. Whatever is it, use your voice to tell some kind of truth that nonfiction cannot contain. Send one story up to 3000 words, or up to three stories of 1000 words or less. NONFICTION: The fantasy of fiction can be dangerous in the wrong hands. People put their head so far into the clouds they forget the world around them. Make them remember what is beautiful, what is horrible. Nonfiction may comprise traditional essays or creative nonfiction. Send one piece up to 3000 words or up to three of 1000 words or less. INTERVIEWS / REVIEWS: Bad Art Friend magazine found inspiration in the discourse created by an article which drove itself into the heart of the literary scene. Send us the next knife, the next lightning rod. Reviews may be 500 words or less; interviews should be queried. ART: Tell a story through hue and grain, canvas and color. What can words not capture? Where do they fail? Where do you succeed? Art may submitted as links or a total attachment size of 25mb.
