Call for Submissions: Journal of Compressed Creative Arts

Please share this call for submissions 
with friends and fellow writers!
On a more personal note, our tiny cat Mia
survived the Frightful & Mysterious Kitty

weeks! Oddly, the only thing that calmed her
during tube feedings was Project Runway.

I Heart My Wife

The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts
is a new online journal focused, not on literary
genres, but on compression as a guiding
aesthetic. I've got new work featured on
the website: a tiny story called "I Heart My
