FIVE:2:ONE lives beyond the literary norm. Send us those works that are odd, strange or bizarre. Our favorites pieces have always been the experimental, the hybrid, the transgressive and the progressive. We like works that carry voices of their own and that may shatter and bend rules. But also send us those “normies” we like those too, their cute little buggers. What we don’t want are rainbows, cupcakes, ponies or any of that other stuff that makes you cringe out of distastefulness. As always we strive to publish authors who come from all walks of life and who may be scooped aside by other magazines. From our full print issues featuring poetry, fiction, nonfiction and, art, to our online publication #thesideshow featuring flash fiction and micro-poetry, we present 4 issues a year and accept submissions year round.
