We look for work that addresses the theme of recovery (in all its forms).
r.kv.r.y. looks to publish fiction that varies widely in style and tone. We prefer stories with character development, psychological penetration, and lyricism, but without sentimentality or purple prose. All submissions should address issues related to recovery and be no more than 3,000 words.
The non-fiction we publish embraces every area of adult interest related to recovery. Material should be suited to a quarterly that is neither journalistic nor academic but that seeks to explore and understand our human failings.
We prefer poems that tell clear stories through concrete images and events of language. Poems need not be in first-person. They need not be written by those actually recovering. **Please submit all poems in one document.**
Short-shorts of 1,000 words or fewer with a theme of recovery.
