What kind of writing are we looking for?

Our unique publishing format requires a slightly different writing approach because each paragraph/segment of the story has to be strong enough to stand on its own (with illustration of course). If your story is a house, we’re asking you to obsess over the individual bricks. Each one has to be beautiful, but without endangering the structural integrity of the story as a whole. And that last brick better bash the reader over the head at the end. We’re less concerned about genre and style; we just want engaging, approachable work—something that can bring a reader back every day.
