Lodestar Lit - Fiction (Poetry)

Note: remove identifying information from manuscript for anonymous judging.

Bring us the wordsmith who defies the mindless machine of capital and shuns conformity to best-sellerism. Simplified by Cesar A. Cruz: "Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable." We reject today's moneymaking writerly establishment to seek and create new meaning. We make art that nurtures vibrancy and shuns dullness the way a star would. We aim first for greatness, not the transient caprice of fame.

Great writing is like a lodestar, a light to learn the world by. And a great writer illuminates by exploring their own mind with wanderlust like an astronaut does the cosmos.
