We look for innovative short fiction that plays with form and content, as well as traditionally constructed stories with fresh voices and original ideas. We invite submissions of previously unpublished short stories year-round and publish annually.
We nominate to O. Henry, Best American Short Stories, and Pushcart prizes.
Tips From the Editor
Consider if your work is saying something new or saying something in a new way. Per our mission guidelines, we seek out innovative storytelling, whether in content or in form. Also consider if your work is conscientious of any potentially problematic material that appears in your work.
