We're looking for your best fiction from 1,000-2,500 words (though shorter is better) for our web issues. We will consider fiction from 2,500-5,000 words for our print issue.
- Please read at least one story from our archives to help discern if we're right for you.
- Please double or at least 1.5 your line spacing and use a serif font.
- Please proofread! The occasional typo won't lead to a rejection, but we can tell when you've sent us a first draft.
We favor interesting, literary narratives with a modern, pop culture appeal. Voice-driven prose also gets us fired up. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please contact us or withdraw immediately if the piece is picked up elsewhere.
In the body of the message box, please provide a short cover letter, brief bio and contact information.
