Ends on

Submit one short story (really, just one, no more than 5,000 words; shorter is often better, to be honest) or one to three works of flash fiction (1,000-word max for each work of flash fiction, combined in one document, not as separate submissions). No fee.

Submit stories for the contest at that link (during contest submission periods), not this one. Stories entered here (non-contest) do not need to fit the theme.

Stories should be double spaced, 12-point standard font, one-inch margins, with indented paragraphs. Pages should be numbered.

Please be sure to withdraw your work promptly if it is accepted by another publication.

We look forward to reading your work.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
