Genres

👌

Fiction

Max words: 5000We do not publish genre fiction (romance, sci-fi, horror). We have only occasionally published flash fiction. While we are always interested in creative explorations in style, we do lean toward classic short stories.
👌

Nonfiction

Max words: 5000We are looking for essays that reach beyond the standard ‘illness narrative’ to develop a topic in an engaging and original manner. Incorporate thoughtful and creative analysis that allows anecdotes to serve a larger purpose. (Please, no academic discourses or works with footnotes. )
👌

Poetry

Max pieces: 4
