There are presently no open calls for submissions.

General Guidelines:

We are currently closed for submissions.

Editors will be reading your work blindly. Please make sure your name or other identifying marks aren't anywhere on your manuscript and this includes in the filename. If you really want to put a name other than the title in the file name use James Franco's (i.e. FRANCO_MYSTORY.doc) because right now you are him. Do indeed enter your real name and contact info on Submittable; this will be revealed to us if your work is chosen and will be used to contact you.


Submissions should be in Times New Roman 12 pt font. Prose submissions only should be double spaced.




Submit only one story or essay at a time no longer than 8,000 words. Please put the word count on the title page.




Submit 3 to 5 poems at a time. Your submissions document should not exceed 8 pages.
