What prospective contributors say about KOJA:

"... I would not select a single piece from issue #1 for my upcoming literary magazine... I hope you are going to like my new submissions to issue #2."

"... You are right to request prospective authors buy a sample copy of your magazine... Having read the issue I received from you, I demand that you immediately return my submissions... I find your magazine to be extremely disgusting..."
