We're interested in stories that explore new spaces: spaces between genres, spaces between styles, spaces between "literary" fiction and "genre" fiction. Above all else, we're interested in strong writing, captivating characters, and unusual stories.

For a few examples of what we like, check out this link, and read the work we've published so far.

We are currently accepting fiction that is 1,000–6,000 words. Please only send us one story at a time, and wait to hear from us before submitting again.
