Given the great volume of submissions that we receive each year, please know that the process of reading and responding to them all can be long. We are committed to getting back to you, but we ask for your patience, and that you please do not contact us regarding the status of submissions. If you need to withdraw a submission, or a partial submission, the best way to do so is through Submittable. To withdraw partial submissions, please just add a note to your file indicating which piece is being withdrawn.

We will consider one short story of up to 5000 words, or up to five short-shorts submitted in one file. We will consider work in any literary style, but are typically less interested in traditional narrative approaches. International submissions and work in translation are particularly encouraged. Translators should secure permission to translate before submitting. We are happy to consider simultaneous submissions.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed but discouraged. While there are no strict length requirements, the poetry editors prefer to read at least 3 pages of work. Please include a cover letter.
