Rue Scribe is the small literature journal of Underwood Press LLC.
It was the advertising slogan for the Volkswagen Beetle developed by the Doyle Dane Bernbach agency in 1959. Since then, it has been called the single best advertising campaign of the 20th Century. We think it fits us perfectly.
We think small as in Small Literature – small but powerful.
Get rid of any fluff. Distill it down to its essence and then distill it again.

Featuring a well packed and constantly updated supply of powerful short fiction and poetry, Rue Scribe
also features Empty Rebus
; a new poem by J H Martin
