Possible submissions include short fiction, poetry, plays, creative non-fiction, and various types of artwork.

Possible topics include:

- white trash people doing trashy things
- trashy people doing white things
- personal truths from a white trash perspective
- interrogations of whiteness
- considerations of pejorative terms such as cracker, hillbilly, redneck and white trash
- the white trash aesthetic
- aspects of Southern culture or literature
