At Sobotka, we hope to bring this type of connection towards books out in people. Though, ideally, we hope your readers/writers not be as disenchanted as Bukowski was, if that’s the approach you take, we’re not gonna knock you down for it. Just try to make what you and others read more fulfilling by submitting something that you feel is worth it!
Send it out to us while you still got the time! Submissions close on June 23rd!
