The generic stock photo to your left is symbolic to our literary mission, You see, we here at bone&marrow believe that the best writers create work that can be deemed "raw" or "gritty" or "unfit for publication." Our goal is to help others get over the mountain of what is considered to be good writing. In conclusion, give us your tired, your poor, your huddled poems and prose yearning to breathe free. Also, give us cat pictures.
