Multiple submissions: we will review no more than 2 works of fiction by an author at a time; please wait to submit more stories until after you have received a reply regarding your current submissions.
Graphic LiteratureShort graphic literature is considered for publication on our blog/online magazine. We don't have a strict cap on number of pages, but it is uncommon for us to accept graphic literature over 25 pages in length.
NovellasWe are not currently open for novella submissions.
Novellas should range between 15K-40K words and graphic novellas should range between 30-75 facing pages. These should be submitted in their respective categories on submittable.

We accept artwork of all kinds, including paintings, photographs, digital and mixed media art, etc. See our back issues to get a sense of our aesthetic.
Please include up to fifteen images, preferably in one submission either as multiple image files or 1 PDF or zip file (in the case of a PDF submission, we will need high resolution image files upon acceptance). We ask that artists send a specific set of images that they feel will cohere well within a literary journal and represent their artistic vision.
