Threadcount is a biannual online literary journal dedicated to hybrid forms, work that challenges genre boundaries and resists classifiable form, that experiments with texture and convention, that (like fabric) packs a lot in a limited space.

“I like the box on the page, the box made out of ink and alphabet, the way it sits there and contains what’s inside it. What’s inside it, though, doesn’t have to be so neat and tidy and can be a thing that is hard to say exactly what it is.”

– Peter Markus, author of We Make Mud
