We accept poems of all forms and styles of up to 80 lines with no minimum line or word count. The key here is two-fold: A clear display of the intention to create a beautiful sounding poem, and an economical use of well-chosen words of powerful meaning and description. Poems can be about anything at all, and of all shapes.
We are open to all genres and styles of up to 4,000 words with no minimum. Although literary fiction tends to be our favourite, we love any kind of story that blows us away, from science fiction to speculative to fantasy to horror. The only requirement is writing your little heart out! We aren’t too fussed about flawless grammar and technique; we’re much more interested in stories that grab and enthral and refuse to let go. We prize beautiful, unique prose but clarity is a must. The most important thing we can tell you is this: Stories, always, always, always, are about people. Everything else is secondary. Write the story you simply must write–the one that screams its way out of your fingers because it needs to be read.
We accept essays of up to 4,000 words on any topic whatsoever that conveys passion and truth, be it personal or issue-focused. We want essays that bite!
