We want writing that shows tension between character and surroundings, that shows how changes in living space affect actions and interactions in that living space. This environment could be an abandoned school, a strip-mall comic bookstore, a thinning forest or a hiking trail—if it shapes the characters, affects events, it’s of interest to us.

  • We’re looking for short stories from 500 to 7500 words. Don’t query about longer pieces. We will accept up to 3 short-shorts (no more than 1,000 words each)

  • Please format document with one inch margins all around and in Times New Roman 12 pt font. For proper manuscript formatting, please see William Shunn’s guide.

  • We accept any genre!

  • Please include a 50-75 word publication ready bio in the cover letter with your submission.
