What we want from "essays" and "non-fiction":

these categories in only very loose terms differ along the crux of "academic essays" and "creative non-fiction." While we are interested in looking at academic essays and work that explores the personal, we prefer essays and creative non-fiction that go beyond the mere personal or the mere descriptive or the mere academic.

Our wishes for the essays and creative non-fiction we publish are guided by the ideas set forth by Rachel Blau Du Plessis in her book _Blue Studios_:

"Contemporary essays are works of sociopersonal "reading," they are also works of "wrought," a thinking that occurs by the physical elaboration of language, a work and a working in language, not only a working through something intellectually or emotionally. Not language for a summary of findings, but language as the inventor of findings."
