Synapse, the flagship journal of mOnocle-Lash, appears at intervals of anywhere from months to years. Each issue includes scores of works of literature, theory, visual art, and many less classifiable offerings from dozens of contributors from all of the various networks, communities, disciplines, movements, and traditions with which we interact. Though appearing erratically, each volume adds new elements or shifts its balance to reflect the evolving relationships and dialogues of Post-NeoAbsurdism and its many contexts, yielding a jam-packed cross-section of contemporary countercultural praxis.
