Reading with Scissors

We welcome submissions!

If you notice stuff like you see here at Reading with Scissors, send it our way. If you can, scan and save it as a jpeg, then email it. You can include a suggested headline/caption, but it’s not necessary. You can also snail mail to:

Reading with Scissors
PO Box 221
Fox River Grove, IL 60021

We can’t promise we’ll use it, but if we do, we’ll give you a Reading with Scissors byline! We’re working on a better incentive, but it might be awhile. Of course, you might prefer anonymity, and we’ll be glad to honor your wish.

    The No. 2 story right beneath: All you ever wanted to know about composting.
