THE VERITAS REVIEW – ISSUE ONE
We welcome submissions from published and unpublished writers, poets, and artists. Send us your prose, your microfictions, personal essays, memoir extracts, poetry, art and photography. If you’re the bastard offspring of Comte de Lautréamont and William S. Burroughs, the mad cousin of Emily Dickinson and Anne Sexton, the eye of Diane Arbus, the ear of Jorge Luis Borges, the breath of Samuel Beckett, if you’ve ridden horses with Patti Smith, have waded thru sentences with Virginia Woolf or William Gass, or spent time on the balcony with Jean Genet then it’s a good chance your work will find a home here.
