GUIDELINES

  • Please submit only one short story at a time and wait for a response before sending another. Simultaneous submissions to other magazines accepted. Please notify promptly if story is accepted elsewhere.
    • Due to increasing submissions and a limited volunteer reading staff, we cannot guarantee a specific response time window. If you’d like to check on the status of your story, log into your Submittable account for updates.
    • You can subscribe to our Premium Edition and receive a faster response time (3 months or less) since we prioritize those submissions first in our reading queue.
    • We accept submissions from anywhere in the world, but stories must be in English.
    • No genre fiction (thriller, horror, romance, etc.); literary fiction only. Novel excerpts only if it stands alone as a story.
    • Stories must be previously unpublished. This includes blogs, online, and any print media with a circulation greater than 1000.
    • Word count limit: no minimum, max 10,000.
    • Please do your best to format manuscript to be double-spaced, with 1" margins, and author name and story title in header.
