Specs is an annual journal of contemporary culture and arts at Rollins College that "aims to create sympathetic interfaces between artistic and critical practices." Spec accepts fiction, non-fiction, cultural criticism, artwork, poetry, and pieces that blur genre boundaries.
The editors are particularly interested in works that examine contemporary culture and/or cross the critical/creative divide while riffing on the theme of “Faux Histories” in multiple ways.
