Submissions are now open for...


In the midst of a company building, a singular vine bursts through the tile floor. What things of beauty and chaos can be found in the clash between the unpredictability of nature and the innate human desire to create and interact with technology? In this new issue, Mother Nature and the Machine, we encourage our writers to think about the wild worlds that come from these two sides. Where do they come together? Where do they not?

Go big or go small, mundane or extraordinary. We look forward to reading your take!

Please note that your piece can discuss both themes of nature and technology, or focus on only one of them. Write what speaks to you the most!
