Unswept is an online literary journal based in Singapore and published twice a year. It owes its name and mission to the genre of mosaic called the asarotos oikos, or unswept floor. Its overriding interest is in the already-given—not just the canon, but what was published last month, or yesterday, or which has been consigned to the ash heap of literary history—and what writers do with it.
The journal seeks to present texts that talk to, about, or behind the backs of other texts; praising or unpraising texts; texts that transform, renovate, reiterate, or pointedly ignore. “Where do our desires come from?” is one question it likes. “What is this bullshit?” is another.
Issue One is now up. Submissions for the next issue close 1 May 2012.
