|Description||We believe poetry is contrary by nature and we look especially for plurality of meaning, for dual reverberation of beauty and concern. Contrary’s poetry in particular often mimics the effects of fiction or commentary. We ask our fiction writers to imagine their readers navigating a story with one finger poised over a mouse button. We have published long stories on the belief that they succeed, but we feel more comfortable with the concise. We favour fiction that is contrary in any number of ways, but our fiction typically defies traditional story form. “Commentary” is our word for the stuff that others define negatively as non-fiction, nominally as essay, or naively as truth. We favor commentary that delivers a message less through exposition than through artistry. The commentary we select is often lyrical, narrative, or poetic.|
