We want the juicy details. Whether it’s the pleasure and difficulty of life’s pulpy bits, the sweat on the outside of the bottle on a summer evening, cold-pressed, bodily, or bin juice–we’re craving it. This issue’s prompt might be taken quite literally, or as a cue for any number of sensibilities. Can a poem speak juicily? How does non-fiction squeeze the good and bad stuff out of the world? What kind of story can be consumed through a straw? Send us your thoughts on any of the above. We can’t wait.

Submissions are open until 11.59pm (AEDT) Sunday 13 February 2022!
