Some artists are published widely and for others this marks their first print publication.

From Deirdre Coyle's "Men Recommend David Foster Wallace to Me," originally published in Electric Literature: "The book opens with a seventy-nine-word story called 'A Radically Condensed History of Postindustrial Life.' The title’s attempt at humor through grandiosity instinctively annoyed me, but I related to the narrative: a pathetic interaction between three desperate people hoping to be liked. Who wouldn’t relate? We all want to be the right kind of person."

From Liz Ziemska's Pushcart-Prize-winning "The Mushroom Queen," originally published in Tin House: "In her newly dematerialized state, she is simultaneously nowhere and everywhere. But this is just an illusion, a temporary form of vertigo brought on by the sudden vastness of her being. In reality, she covers a little less than three square acres, one edge dangling in the cool green waters of the Hudson, the other pushed up against the crumbling blacktop of Route 9. A red-brick house squats on her chest like a poorly digested meal. There’s a maple tree growing out of her forehead, its flame-colored leaves the color of her panic."
