Becoming Part of the EAP Community.

Join the conversation.

In EAP: The Magazine, all sorts of writing comes under the heading of what we here call “very EAP.”  We’ve published film scripts, a libretto, poems, short stories, and analyses of everything from the Museum of Jurassic Technology, to Boris Pasternak’s love of the Everyday, to Bugs Bunny as a model for foreign policy.  We’ve published a paean to the Dodo, a poem of outrage about the betrayal of a revolution, and the story of a snotty little kid who falls through a rabbit hole and fights a Gnome Army to change the world.

And more.

If you’ve got something to say that is clear, courteous, and creative, then we really would love to hear from you. Email  Mike for anything relating to Popular Culture, email Marissa for Poems, and email Tod for Everything Else.

We’re an eccentric bunch, and an eclectic bunch, but we’re also very welcoming and very curious about whatever you have to say. And you certainly don’t have to have the premise of a book in mind before joining the conversation (another of our favorite sayings: “The perfect is the enemy of the good”). If there’s something you’re passionate about, try it out on us. Write an essay. A critique. A poem. A fanciful vision of whatever far off world it is that you daydream about. The plan is simply that the best and most inquiring of the pieces submitted to the quarterly magazine will be offered the opportunity to be worked on to eventually form books that will be published by EAP.

(One caveat, though—and a very important one, too. If your secret wish is to become rich and famous, and be able to look down on others less fortunate than you through the magic of your own writing, we are the wrong place for you. What we’re looking for is people who are more interested in expressing something they have to say about who they are, why the world is the way it is, and what is possible to be done to make both of those better. Really. That’s who we’re looking for. You’re not going to get rich and famous with EAP. We think people trying to get rich and famous is a crummy way to run a culture, prizing mindless competition over a real desire to understand reality. Just so you know.)
