Fiction submissions should be limited to a single story. We tend to prefer stories of 5,000 words or fewer. All submissions should be accompanied by a cover letter and should include the title of the story on all pages. Be sure to visit our masthead and address your submission to the correct editor by name. Please wait at least three months after hearing back from us before submitting more work. If you submit more work before the end of three months, we reserve the right to return your submission unread.
