We are a journal of ekphrastic fiction inspired by Raymond Carver’s “The Train,” inspired by John Cheever’s “The Five-Forty-Eight.” The Five-Forty-Eight accepts only stories which are inspired by and written as extensions of other stories.
We are also a journal of ekfrantic fiction inspired by our love for the way stories expand the universe into myriad and inexplicable wonders. Please give us more to wonder at. Give us more that life could be. Render us dumbstruck by the awesome and the awful and everything in between. But do so always with a firm and loving handle on your sentences and structures. We want to know that what we experience with you is real.
