There are presently no open calls for submissions.

What do we want?

We want writing that is compelling, surprising, frightening, brutal, and hopeful. Writing that’s bold. Writing that doesn’t bore us to tears.  We do have an inclination towards works with an international flavor, works that converse with the vast world we live in, but if you think your work is good, we would definitely like to read it.

We welcome unsolicited fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, previously unpublished in English.

If you submit a translated piece, we may ask you to also send us the original text. Please note that the translator will be responsible for obtaining the original author’s permission.

We accept works in English only.

Simultaneous Submissions?

Have no fear. We accept simultaneous submissions. However, kindly withdraw your submission as soon as it is accepted somewhere else. You can easily withdraw your work from inside of your Submittable. If a single poem from your submission is accepted elsewhere, go ahead and make a note in Submittable, as opposed to withdrawing the entire manuscript. We'll continue to review the remainder of your pieces.

What Should You Send?

  • Send us only your best work.
  • Send only one short story or essay at a time. For poetry, please compile up to five poems in a single document. Please wait to hear a response from us before submitting more work.
  • Prepare your work as a .doc, .docx, .rtf, .pdf, or .txt file.
  • We'd love to learn more about you so send us a short bio. If you are submitting a translation, send us a brief bio of the original author in addition to your own. Please note that we retain the right to edit bios and photos before they go up for publication.
  • If you are submitting a translation, give us a heads-up regarding the permission status you've acquired from the original author.
