From the Broken Pencil guidelines:

Remember, we are a guide to alternative and independent culture. We don’t want your thoughts on Hollywood movies or your touching tale about coming of age on the prairies! Make sure you have some sense of the kind of work we use before getting in touch. Never send us something if you haven’t at least read Broken Pencil.
