About CCM-Entropy

CCM-Entropy is the result of newly merged Civil Coping Mechanisms and Entropy, an independent literature community and portal that includes CCM: publisher & promoter of kick-ass independent literature, Entropy: a magazine and community of contributors that publishes diverse literary and non-literary content, and Enclave: a community blog that exists as an open and central space for contributors representing different literary communities, corners, and aesthetics to express themselves openly, urgently. The portal also features a growing small press database and resources for writers. While here, we hope you’ll find what you’re looking for. Take a look around; stay awhile. We’re coping.
