Houseguest: House, Guest. As our name implies, we are interested in the juxtaposition of the common and the strange: the stranger that enters, that invades even as it’s invited, that may never truly leave. As a culture, we are ambivalent about houseguests, and ambivalent about ambivalence.
Here at Houseguest, we value ambivalence. We appreciate uncertainty. We espouse contradiction. We love thresholds—liminal spaces and surreal situations—and watching what gets through, what gets in. We welcome the Welcome Unwelcome.
We welcome anything you see fit to send us, provided it has not been previously published elsewhere.
