Editorial Focus

We are careful about the work we publish. We read everything, and try to offer feedback on promising stories that didn’t quite work for us. So be fearless and send your most daring work.

Tips From the Editor

***Electronic submissions only.***

The print magazine and the website feature completely different content. Do not submit the same story to both online and print, please (it will cause mass confusion). Please submit no more than one story, or three poems to our website or print issue at one time. As of right now we are a non-paying entity. We’re working to change that.

The Wait
Online: Three weeks to three months.
Print: Up to six months.
Contest: Up to four months.

Word/Time Counts:
Online: 1,000 max
Print: 4,000 max
Contest: Dictated by contest type
