About

To all the abibliophobes out there, don’t worry, we’re back – here to intrigue the bookworms, captivate the lollygaggers, and indulge the eccentric, all those out there looking for buttons to press and written words to explore. In other words, we’ve got a new review and are officially taking the liberty of short circuiting your dispensers, fueling the current with new energy and a fresh beat every three months. Short Circuit will disrupt the literary flow on a quarterly basis with our latest original stories and poems.

Before Submitting

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.
