Our guidelines are as follows:

  • Submit up to 5,000 words in one document as a PDF or a Word document with a title.
  • All submissions are blind and should not include any identification.
  • Standard font (i.e. Arial, Times New Roman, etc.), double space all of your documents, and 12 point font size.
  • Titles should be centered.

We are looking for a clear voice and narrative that utilizes devices and themes to their best capabilities. There should be appropriate use of convention that has intention to further the story through scene, characterization, and reflection. We always appreciate strong images and details in our prose as well. These are the stories that the world must know.

We want strong messages and purpose in these pieces, paired with unique perspectives and developed themes. The piece should include appropriate balance of exposition, meditation, and scenes throughout as it pertains to the purpose. There should be limited abstractions and irrelevant tangents. We accept all types of non fiction as long as they meet the conventions listed above-- Including experimental!

We look forward to reading your work!
