Submissions to Issue 7 and the poetry contest are currently open until December 7th and 31st respectively. Categories to the magazine may close early as they fill up. Our Submittable-allotted monthly free submissions limit has been reached. You can still submit via the Tip Jar categories, or wait until December 1st when free submissions become available again. Be aware, though, that categories will be closed as we accept enough pieces from them.

Submissions are read blind; do not include any identifying information in your submission document, document title, or the title in the Submittable form.


Please only submit to one category per reading period (the poetry contest doesn't count--you may submit to the poetry category with any other category),
 and please make sure your submission is as you want it to be before you submit, as submissions cannot be edited once submitted.

If you are withdrawing only one piece of a multiple-piece submission, please leave a note in your submission instead of withdrawing it and re-submitting, as this uses up our monthly free submissions limit.
