  • We are hungry for character driven stories with diverse voices.

  • Stories should be between 700 and 2500 words.

  • We accept most speculative fiction, including fantasy, sci-fi, magical realism, and some horror. (We prefer our horror eerie and atmospheric rather than gory or gratuitously violent.) We don't accept romance or erotica.
