We, the fiction staff, are looking for unique, well-crafted, pieces. This means everything is clearly explained and laid out. We are also prioritizing what we like to call the “perfect reader experience.” The reader should feel like they got something out of the story, and shouldn't feel dragged by a story’s length. Keeping the story interesting is a must, while never losing control of reality unless intentionally unrealistic. A fitting ending never hurt anyone either. While traditionally rooted stories are a staple of our journal, our staff also appreciates the strange and unusual. This doesn't mean we are looking for pieces with shock value; everything must be done in good taste.
Limit: 5,000 words.
