SD welcomes work from all,
and does not discriminate
based on country, creed,
color, sex organs, sex identity, preferred sex positions,
heart's desire, age, eye color, sports agility, handedness,
or lunar sign.
in more tamed lingo:
we embrace and encourage women,
people of color, people with disabilities,
LGBT writers, immigrants, internationals,
and other writers who feel marginalized
by mainstream madness.
We are inspired by varied voices
fractured in the current climate.
Offering here, haven.
We are open to those who've published many a book,
and to those who've never published a book.
We look for work that is taut and raw,
real as our own flesh
quivering in the winter light.
for work that breathes
with an invisibly divine shudder.
We are open to poetry and prose
that is and makes
new, and genre-bending
Rooted reveling, revealing.
"Let the beauty you love be what you do"
We believe in you!
