A few thoughts on what we’re looking for at On the Cusp:

  • Above and beyond, good writing. It can take just about any form if it’s honest-to-Jebus good stuff.
  • Candor. Don’t snow us. We’ll know it.
  • Don’t forget this is meant to be read aloud. Writing for a live audience is different than your usual animal. Read your stuff to yourself, to your booty call, to your cat, and see their reaction. If the cat yawns, you’re good.
  • Trust Kurt Vonnegut.
