Crashtest publishes poetry, stories and creative non-fiction in the form of personal essays, imaginative investigation, experimental interviews, whatever, but please don’t send us the book report you wrote for English or your Speech and Debate abstract on why (insert trend) is (good or bad) for (insert interest group). In other words, we’re looking for writing that has both a perspective and a personality. We’re looking for writing that has something to say. Our editors are also all writers; we work in many different forms and have many different ideas about what makes writing “good.” As a result, we don’t have a specific kind of writing we’re looking to publish. If you write poetry that rhymes, great!, as long as you do it well. If you write short stories in which characters grow wings and fly around the town’s bell-tower, great!, as long as the story has the guts to pull it off.
Our only request is that you don’t send us work which you found boring or tedious to write. No enforced school assignments, please! If, on the other hand, you wrote something for school, or at home, or out of sheer self-preservation on the most boring family trip in history, and you think it is funny or sad or insightful or unique or in some way INTERESTING then please let us read it.
Our only other request is that you don’t send us fan fiction. We can all watch the same movies and read the same books, but we can’t all get into your head and that’s where we’re interested in being.
