PROMPT/THEME: a scary idea. a book with no characters. just some empty landscapes. physical memories. humans long gone. like a bathroom stall, scrawled messages before the end. artifacts, museums, shots, panoramas. is it possible to tell a human story without humans? only the things they left behind. to be liberally interpreted. is it worth preserving the legacy of our species even? maybe it’s better to be wiped clean. expat 4 was about the personalities. for EXPVT we ask you to reject the self by giving of yourself. beginning of i am legend vibes. i like nature. the world. fuck humans. they ruin everything. a book of pure soul and solipsism for a cold age, an age of abandon. expat v is the ananthropy issue. idea stories. a log of spirits. and their thoughts. some shit you’d find in a shipwreck.
We are not presently accepting long form manuscripts for print publication, or queries of that nature.
