To be considered for publication your submission must arrive between the 1st – 23rd of the previous month. We will respond to your submission as soon as we can. The longer it takes us to respond, the more strongly we are considering your submission. Occasionally we will give feedback to unsuccessful submitters.
Short Fiction – we want contemporary, literary short stories and flash fiction. We want ideas that affect, engage, move, and entertain. We want writing that is beautiful, poetic, thought-provoking, original, and inspiring. We want images that linger in our minds. We want to be seduced and savaged. We want sentences that ping. A max. of 2,000 words. A max. of 2 fiction submissions.
Poetry – we want contemporary poetry that communicates. We want the passionate, the personal, and the particular. We want lines we cannot forget. We want poems that don’t know they’re poems. We want to be surprised. A max. of 6 poems.
Essays – we want personal essays. We want specific questions that spiral out into universal answers, and vice versa. We want to see your mind at work. We are more interested in seeing how you are saying it than what you are saying. A max. of 2,000 words. A max. of 2 essays.
Photography – we want your definition of beauty. We want clean images. We want to see something we may never forget. A max. of 6 photographs.
