The title Kill Your Darlings comes from a quote attributed to William Faulkner. 'As an aphorism both darkly witty and deadly serious, Kill Your Darlings perfectly encapsulates our journal's vision. Don't be afraid to speak the truth, be tongue-in-cheek, or give a little lip when it's deserved. But above all, do what you must to create literature that demands attention. Kill your darlings, if need be.'
