Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (May 2019). We provide the following information as an archive.
We are looking for stories about families of all configurations. It's fine to draw heavily on real-life experiences, but the work must read like fiction and all stories accepted for publication will be presented as fiction. Sticking too tightly to "fact" can limit the larger truth that fiction is able to reveal. Give your story the leeway it needs in order to find its own life. And, if your story is closely related to your actual experience, it is wise to change details that would allow the real-life people to say, Hey, that's me!
Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.
