We are currently closed to submissions. Submissions will reopen at the end of January.
Please submit in ONE category only. Prose and poetry should be pasted in the body of the email. If your poems require special formatting, you may send an attachment.
Simultaneous submissions are fine. Include a 50-word, third person bio. Longer bio will be subject to editing. Send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
For fiction/prose, we are partial to surrealist, experimental and quirky writing. 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Prose and poetry must be entirely unpublished.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.
