We’re reading now for our November Issue!
Prose: 5000 words or less, open to content, form, structure.
Fiction: We welcome short stories of all shapes and sizes, from the mind-blowing traditional story to fiction that blurs the lines between forms, genre fiction, experimental fiction, etc. We also welcome flash and micro fiction. Please submit only one story or flash fiction totaling to no more than the word limit at a time.
Nonfiction: We’re looking for slow burns in a world of hot takes, questions asked instead of answers proved. We welcome a wide variety of nonfiction—traditional essay, narrative nonfiction, micro/flash memoir—and encourage experimentation, though not at the expense of factual truth. Too many true stories go untold, and we want to offer space to honor those voices. Please submit only one essay or flash totaling to no more than the word limit at a time.
Poetry: 3-5 poems, open to content, form, structure. Submit all poems in one document. Do not submit individual poems separately. Please don’t forget the power voice, sound, and time can have in poetry.
For all submissions, simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know. To withdraw one part of a submission, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please wait six months before resubmitting.Experimental, traditional, playful, prayerful, celebratory, challenging: human—try us. Show us a new way to tell one of the millions of stories under that glorious sun.
