Editorial Focus

After Happy Hour isn't limited to any particular genre. In fact, we're not big fans of the whole idea of genre. Whether you write sci-fi poetry, graphic memoirs, historical flash fiction, or straight up literary--if it has strong characters and tight language, we want to read it. We're based in Pittsburgh, PA and have a particular affinity for writers with a connection to the city. Don't take that as a limit to our demographic, however. We welcome submissions from anywhere in the world.

Tips From the Editor

The editorial crew is a weird bunch. We count among us a Klingon-speaking demigirl, a poet who carves words into food, and the author of a cannibal comedy. We would love to publish more genre, genre-bending, and experimental work but get unfortunately little of publishable quality. Be that writer, and you’ll make our little oddball hearts happy.
