Submission Guidelines
The submission window for Issue No. 3 is closed.

Announcement: After Issue No. 3 is released on November 1, 2018, we are going on a semester-long hiatus. No issue will come out in Summer 2019. The next issue will be Winter 2019. 

The submission window for No. 4 will open for prose on February 1, 2019, and for poetry on August 1, 2019. 

Typically (during a non-hiatus year), our submission windows are: 

February 1 - April 1 for the Summer Issue 
August 1-October 1 for the Winter Issue


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.

                          Flash fiction or memoir: 1-3 pieces per reading period (3,000 words max)
