high resolution jpeg of tiff format.

- we started streetcake to offer all writers an inclusive space to share their work with the world.
- we don't look at your credentials, where you're from, where you've been, where you did your degree or who you know before reading your writing because we believe that we should approach your writing and voice without any preconceptions. in the words of Nirvana, 'come as you are.'
we will always try to respond to submissions, but this may take up to six weeks.
