While Ethel seeks a wide variety of writing and art, Ethel is particularly interested in the voices of women, the LGBTQ community and people of color. Overall, our main interest is in work that helps us rethink/reimagine the often worn-out narratives of the past.

Ethel seeks poetry, art, micro-fiction, micro-plays, micro-essays, personal essays,

paragraphs from your thesis, prophesies, lists of facts,

letters of protest, diagnoses, letters to the editor,

lists of baked goods seen at the local Socialist bake sale,

album reviews, book reviews, translations,

difficult math equations that you have solved,

drawings of miniature dresses

and so on.
