We are looking for work that wows, that moves—work that is genuine and sincere.  Send us your best.

THEME:  The theme of our Spring/Summer 2021 issue is resilience.  Toughness, adaptation in the face of adversity, the ability to bounce back—time and time again.  Use the theme as a starting point (stay close to the theme or wander off).  Show us what resilience means to you.

Requirements:  Please read the following carefully.  Due to submission volume, pieces not following guidelines may not be read.

  • Fiction & Nonfiction: 750 words max. 
  • Poetry: 1–3 poems. 500 words in total (preference for shorter poems).
  • Art & Photography: 1–3 pieces, .jpg or .tiff (.tiff preferable).  Submit each piece as its own file.  Min resolution 300 dpi.  Max file size 45 MB.  Please note: regardless of resolution, the image you send us must look good.  If you zoom in and the image is pixelated, we cannot use it.


  • Formatting:  Manuscripts should have your name, submission title, and page numbers.  
  • File naming:  Please use the title of your piece.
  • Make sure you're submitting to the proper genre.  Miscategorized pieces may not be read.
  • NOTE:  The online and print journal are separate and exclusive.  If you are published in one, you will not be published in the other.
  • Finally, we welcome all writers and particularly seek to be a welcoming space to BIPOC writers, LGBTQ+ writers, and writers of all marginalized identities.
