Send ONE poem or short fiction (word limit is 250) in the body of the email (we don't open attachments.) We love beautifully-written narratives with a strong sense of character, and evocative language. If your submission has more than one poem or story, is descriptive, has typos, is in a foreign language, or has been previously published in print or online, we will pass. In order to maintain our reputation as the magazine with the fastest response time (usually within a week), we may send a form rejection -- please do not let this hurt your feelings or discourage you from trying us again. We're looking forward to reading you!!
