*We seek submissions that range from poems that look like recipes and recipes that look like poems, non-fiction pickles, instructions for and from, performance scores for grocery stores or grossed out smores, drawings of uncertain cheetos, gingham soliloquies, TV dinner guests with speculative meal times, etc. You can do what you want — both in life and in this moment — but a few potentially generative sites for thinking (in the cookbook world we call this a lookbook) include community recipe books, fluxus event scores, concrete poetry, and diner placemats.
