Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (May 2018). We provide the following information as an archive.
What we are looking for: We want clean, coherent, well-written, creative, cohesive manuscripts that strike hard and are relentless. We want to feel what you felt when you were crafting your work. If you choose to submit work that is grisly and biting, it must have a grace and beauty to it. If you submit work that is beautiful, make sure that it is not simply beautiful for beauty's sake alone. Show us that you respect your work and that you understand your craft. We do not want clichés or pseudo-cleverness. We do not want manuscripts that are defined only by the words on the page. We crave manuscripts that leave an indelible impression deep within us. Captivate us, surprise us, draw us in, but no matter what, do not bore us.
Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…
- Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
- Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
- Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
- Be professional, patient, and persistent.
