We accept works of fiction and creative nonfiction less than 7000 words. All genres and all styles are welcome. We’re sorry to say we can only review a single story at a time. Please do not submit multiple stories in one file, even if it is below the max word count. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. You can reserve your spot now, but when spaces are full we can no longer accommodate additional participants. For more details, visit our submission page.
