General Guidelines

We use Submittable for all of our submissions. We do not accept submissions via direct email or postal mail.

There are never any submission fees. Except for the occasional contest, we do not offer payment, but accepted anthology authors receive 2 copies of the completed books; chapbook authors receive 10 copies. We almost never publish online.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please be fastidious about promptly withdrawing work accepted elsewhere.

Current Calls

  • μtxt 3: We seek compelling short works for our third microtext anthology. We are looking for flash fiction (any genre), brief creative nonfiction and very short poems. This work will be produced as a limited edition miniature book. Our word limit is 750 words.
  • Masque: In this anthology, we are seeking works that mask/masque themselves in the form of something else. For example, things like receipts, lease documents, and art exhibit catalog entries can contain stories within them while also functioning as what they are. Similarly, letters, elementary school essays, and personal ads can tell more than one story at the same time. See the description in Submittable for more details.
  • Twisted: For this collection, we are looking for pieces of any genre that contain twists. Surprises can occur anywhere throughout the narrative and can take on many different forms, but they all have one thing in common: the capacity to shock. The more mind-bending, the better. We want a tangled narrative that can still be riveting, even if the reader is holding an anthology with the word “Twisted” printed on its cover.
