Submission Guidelines

SHORT STORIES
Short story submissions should be no less than 1000 words and no greater than 6500.

FLASH FICTION
Flash fiction is a piece of fiction under 1000 words.

NOVEL EXCERPTS
We will accept submissions of novel excerpts up to 6500 words in length. Please include a brief synopsis of your novel and a general overview of its theme. We will take into consideration the limitations imposed by submitting an excerpt best understood in the context of a novel.

Additionally, selections from longer works such as screenplays and novellas may be considered under this category.

STRETCHING FORMS
The stretching form category includes experimental and unique writing that we feel exists beyond the usual categories of fiction, poetry, and essay. Submissions should be no longer than 6500 words in length.

CREATIVE NONFICTION
We’re interested in reading both full-length personal essays (1000 to 6500 words) and very short nonfiction pieces (650 words or less). Whatever the length or the subject matter, preference will be given to compelling stories strong in lyricism, wit, compassion, or daring.

POETRY
Please send no more than 6 poems in a single document.

REVIEWS & INTERVIEWS
We are interested in book reviews of literary and experimental fiction and poetry. Our primary interest is in books from small, independent and university presses but we will accept reviews of books from large publishing houses.

Similarly, we are primarily interested in interviews with authors and poets who publish with small, independent and university presses but we will accept interviews of authors and poets who are published by large houses.
