WHAT WE SEEK
 
Flash fiction, poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, image.

 
We like writing that is honest, gritty, and vulnerable. We like plot, but not too much. We want characters like us -- complicated, flawed, human. Make us uncomfortable. Provoke awe. Brevity, lyric, place, experiment. Submissions are open Feburary 1 - April 1  and August - October 1

We do not read in May, June, July, November, December or January

                           Poetry: 1-3 poems per reading period (10 pages max)
                           Flash fiction or memoir: 1-3 pieces per reading period (3,000 words max)
                          Longer prose: 3,000 words max
                          Image: 1-3 images per reading period (Submit work in jpg form)

All work must be unpublished. We try to respond within two months;  sometimes it takes longer. For now, we are unable to offer payment. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but let us know if  this is the case at manzano.mountain.review (at) gmail.com.

We look forward to  reading your best work.
