Fiction Defunct

Micro prose told in 420 characters or less (i.e. the max length of a FB status update) to be posted for the sheer joy of it. Weird? Okay. Funny? Okay. Mystery? Okay. Literary? Okay. Make it damn good. And read a couple before you submit. Besides that, just keep it R-rated.

Poetry Defunct

I'm big on stories right now. But if you must, then do it in 140 characters or less (i.e. the max length of a Twitter update). Damn good still applies. Applies double, in fact. Go to it. Oh wait! Almost forgot. No Haiku! For the love of God. No Haiku!

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
