Short Fiction/Prose: 1000 to 4000 words. One story/prose piece only.
Flash Fiction/Prose: 100 to 1000 words apiece. One to three pieces.
Poetry: Three to Five poems. Prose poetry and hybrid form welcome.
Mixed-genre: Two to four flash prose pieces and poems that revolve around the same theme or imagery.
For fiction/prose, we are partial to surrealist dreamscapes. Realist fiction is welcome if it’s dark and quirky. Experimental and genre-blurring works are sought. For poetry, we lean toward the lyrical, eccentric, ambivalent and wildly imaginative.
Art/Text: One to three flash prose pieces or poems, based on or paired with artwork by the writer or a visual artist.
Artwork: Two to five pieces of visual poetry, asemic writing or other post-literate variety. Preferences will be given to images that work as a series. Collaborations are welcome.
Prose and poetry must be entirely unpublished. Artwork may be previously posted on the artist’s web site or blog. Editor may solicit reprints of artworks.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Include a 50-word, third person author/artist bio. Longer bios will be subject to editing.
