Submission Guidelines

Submissions for our print issues:

Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction

We seek short stories and essays that celebrate strong narrative voice. We strive to showcase both emerging and established writers. Our print issues are not themed and submissions should be 5,000 words or less (longer pieces are judged at a higher standard).

Please note: we do not accept poetry submissions at this time.

Art and Photography (rolling submissions)

We will accept JPEG, GIF, TIFF or PNG for the cover as well as interior sections.

Submissions for our online content:

A few times a year, we publish online issues centered around a main theme. For specifics and guidelines, please join our newsletter and keep an eye out for our formal announcement of submissions.

We accept submissions of fiction and nonfiction. Though we will consider pieces of any length, we prefer submissions in the range of 1,500-2,500 words. We are not accepting poetry at this time; please see our sister site AMP! for poetry submissions.
