About the journal
Flytrap Uprising was created to enable more people to get their work into the world of print. While submitting our own pieces of writing, we encountered hurdles in an area that is over-saturated with new work. Publishers and journal editors are inundated with potentially great writing, but limited space deigned that the piece would never see the light of day. The submission process (in our opinion) has become some bureaucratic monster that, at the least, is off-putting. Yes, most "successful" writers were denied publication multiple times before finally landing that coveted prize. We've all heard that spiel, and it's supposed to encourage us to keep plugging away and keep sending out those letters in hopes that someone, somewhere will take pity and publish a piece of writing. It's a tiring, disheartening, and ultimately disgusting process. So, Flytrap Uprising was invented to provide an outlet for those who are just as disgusted with the bureaucratic web as we are.
