Sooth: noun, archaic. Meaning truth. Truth: synonyms: fact, verity, certainty, certitude. This definition falls far from its mark when it shouldn't be aiming for a specific target altogether. We want poetry that examines your uncertain truths and truths that are unafraid to redefine themselves. We want words that live outside the fear of being the wrong ones.

We look forward to reading your most honest work,

Marie & Ezra
