Editorial Focus

We publish accomplished fiction under 1000 words. In recent months, we've run stories by Iowa Short Fiction Award and Grace Paley Prize winning authors, as well as by writers who were previously unpublished. The 2013 volume of the Pushcart Prize contains a story from our pages (only the 2nd time that an online journal had received this distinction). Also we are the home of the Wigleaf Top 50, a link-based award annual (Mel Bosworth is the Series Editor; the most recent Selecting Editor was Ben Loory.)

Tips From the Editor

We tend to go for distinct and original writing.
