Tiny Spoon

About: At Tiny Spoon, they are especially interested in experimental work, although not exclusively. If you’ve had trouble finding a home for your work because it doesn’t fit into generally recognized categories, chances are your home is right here with Tiny Spoon.

Tiny Spoon seeks work that pushes the boundaries of conventional genres; work that is daring, experimental, innovative, quirky, thoughtful, vulnerable, electric, eccentric. In other words, your inner workings expanded and exposed, raw and immediate; your fragile soul parted at the seams into our bound paper glossary of tiny wonder. Your voice is beautiful, edgy, infinite, and unique, and Tiny Spoon wants to raise it.

Their next issue CUT / COPY / PASTE: The Original will have an open submission call with a unique caveat–while this issue will be printed and released, as usual, all pieces included will be open for use in the second iteration in this series: The Remix. We ask that collaborators be comfortable with others collaging or incorporating their work in new ways.
