Editorial Focus

MicroLit Almanac publishes innovative flash work, any genre. Although conventional micros are fewer than 300 words, we are far from conventional. So take up to a thousand, but no more.

We hold up fostering community as necessary: a world-building endeavor focused on loving responsibility in a realm that asks much of us. Our creative actions flow, form, and sustain a community built on diversity and inclusion. 

Tips From the Editor

Manuscripts should be no longer than 1000 words. Manuscripts should be double-spaced in 12-point type, with at least one-inch margins, and sequentially numbered pages. The author’s name and email address, and the word count, should be typed at the top of the first page. We accept simultaneous submissions. We do not accept previously published work

Cover letter? Skip it. Please include an Author Bio, Artist's Statement, Social Media links, and author website in a separate document with your submission.
