One poem by Count Giacomo Leopardi is titled "The Infinite"–your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read this poem and then to write a short short story or poem for publication. I am looking for various interpretations to the same theme, but with just as short a length, or perhaps a little longer. No more than 350 words.


The House decides what is acceptable. Nothing vulgar, vile, vicious, or pornographic, or any other thing the House considers unacceptable. 


No fees. No simultaneous submissions. No manuscripts returned. The volume will be published in 2018. No date will be set until the works have been accepted and agreements secured.
