We are pleased to be hosting our first fiction and poetry contest! We are looking for well-written literary fiction and poetry and are especially partial to interesting and innovative characterization and rich setting-based works. 

Please send us one piece of stand-alone fiction, three poems, or both (as long as you submit twice).

There are no limits on lines for poetry. However, we prefer fiction under 5,000 words. (If your piece is a bit longer and you think it would be a good fit, go ahead and submit it:))

Winners in both categories will be awarded a $200 prize and publication in one of our online issues. Tentatively, we will close for submissions on December 31st. 

We publish an annual print anthology in June of every year! We pay $20 and one contributor copy to each accepted writer. We are currently accepting submissions for our 2022 anthology titled “Vines.” We want stories and poems that are tangled, ensnared. Writing about growth. Writing about production, fermentation, harvesting. Please take the word "Vines" in whichever sense you'd like.
