Tips From the Editor

No personal information (such as name, email, social media handles, etc.) should appear on your submission, in the title field, or file name. Submissions with identifying personal information will be returned unread. We understand that nonfiction submissions sometimes contain the writer’s name and ask that you use your best judgment in these circumstances.

Send us writing that you’re excited about. Send us work that took courage to begin and tenacity to complete. Send us your proudest personal essay, your classic short story, your reboot of the villanelle, or your weirdest experimental text. Send us your flash fiction or nonfiction. Send your epistle, erasure, hybrid, prose poem, or micro memoir. Send us the story of your life lived in your body.
