Hot Property) and items for the home (Buy By Design).

are generally favoured over humorous ones, and rhyming poetry is discouraged. We are not completely averse to more innocent or whimsical creations, but they should be a good fit for the aesthetic of the magazine. Genre work is welcome, but should not be clichéd or genre-typical. Experimentation is encouraged.
