Stories – Call for Submission

We are always looking for original and innovative stories from writers. Fiction that is entertaining, enlightening and that experiments with language and form, while steering clear of the urge to be gimmicky, formulaic or long-winded.

The Preferred word count can vary or can be variable though; prose pieces have an upper limit of 3,000 words.
