“XZBT gives the students in my creative writing course a chance to share their passion with the world. This magazine is inclusive and international. More importantly, it’s fun to read! If you’re a poet, a fiction writer, a photographer, a filmmaker, an essayist, or just a borderline crazy person who is compelled to create spontaneously for no reason other than wild self-expression, you’ve come to the right place.”

Lance Hawvermale, professor, novelist, and award-winning poet

“…a rare, eclectic online forum where writers/photographers/exhibitionists from all across the world can express themselves. XZBT means freedom – freedom from mediocrity, freedom from rhetoric, and the freedom to write and read things that don’t reek of conformity. XZBT does not keep creativity on a leash.”
