Submit work double-spaced in 12-point font. Because we are an on-line journal, we lean toward shorter material - and are open to pieces up to 3,000 words. Please include a word count in your cover letter.

We like dark work as well as work that makes us laugh; experimental forms and traditional narratives. It just has to be AMAZING, especially considering that less than 3% of what is submitted is accepted. As long as the genre is also literary, we are open to sc-fi, mystery, crime, or other categories. In general, though, we don't like to read work that involves violence toward children or animals or rape scenes. 

We do not accept previously published work. For more info on what we are looking for, read our DUOTROPE interview here.
