When it comes to nonfiction, more than anything, we look at language. It needs to be precise, eloquent, musical--it should sound good to the ear and feel good in the mouth. Though we are most interested in essays, we have a soft spot for flash memoir, hermit-crab writing, or really anything that pushes the limits of genre and that is driven by deep and powerful thinking.
Nonfiction submissions may include one piece up to 8,000 words or up to three flash pieces (less than 1,000 words each) in each submission.
Submissions received between May 1 and November 30 will be considered for the Winter Print Issue. Submissions received between December 1 and April 30 will be considered for the Summer Online Issue.
