The following submission types are temporarily closed:

2022 Chapbooks

We publish one round of chapbooks each year. We are looking for innovative prose and poetry, and work that is both, or maybe neither. That thing you have tucked away in a drawer because you aren't sure what it is or where to send it: try us! We publish chapbooks with page ranges of approximately 20 to 45 pages. Please submit only once for this year. DEADLINE: May 1, 2022

Issue 21: Poetry

We accept submissions of 1-8 poems, depending on the length of the poems. We prefer poetry submissions to be 10 pages or fewer. You can certainly send us longer submissions, particularly if you are submitting a long poem, but longer submissions need to earn their length. We pay $20 per batch of poems we publish. Our preference is for innovative verse that pushes the boundaries of poetry, but we are open to a wide range of styles and voices. Please submit only once per reading period. The deadline for submissions for Issue 21 is October 31, 2022.

Currently Closed to Submissions

Issue 21: Prose

We publish prose (fiction and creative non-fiction) up to 10,000 words long. We will consider pieces longer than 10,000 words, but they need to earn their length. We pay $20 per piece. If your piece is longer than 1000 words, please submit only one piece. If your pieces are fewer than 1000 words each, feel free to submit several pieces at once. We are looking for innovative short fiction from diverse voices. Our preference is for the strange, the experimental and the boundary-pushing, but we are open to a wide range of styles and voices. The deadline for submissions for Issue 21 is Oct 31, 2022.
