Sequestrum - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
Note: remove identifying information from manuscript for anonymous judging.

A sequestrum is a necrotic bone fragment, identifiable by its separation from standard skeletal structures. Despite its autonomy, these slivers retain the phosphates and marrows of their source. A sequestrum is a remnant, independent yet interconnected to its origin. And so is the writing we publish. Sequestrum is a journal of short prose and poetry. We publish concise, evocative writing that couldn?t exist in any other form, yet reminds us of the breadth and scope of longer works. Brew us in the morning to swirl with your coffee grounds, or let our bones rattle and sing their skeleton song on your daily subway ride. In the whir of modern life, we spread our splintered dreams under your feet; tread softly, for you tread on our dreams?be them home to many a toothy edge.
