Send only one story (more are acceptable only if the stories are very short, such as flash or micro fiction). Stories should be typed, double-spaced, and proofread, and no more than 18 pages doublespaced. Don’t send manuscripts of novels or short story collections. We do like to see chapters of novels, but they have to work on their own.

  • Additional info

    For now, we publish once a year. As soon as we have enough material we publish an issue. We try to send a reply in 8 months, but sometimes we get bogged down. This is especially true when we are going to press. Your manuscript is one of hundreds, and we try to read every one. All our editors are volunteers; so if you don’t hear from us, feel free to ask about the status of your manuscript, but be polite. If you choose to write a cover letter, mention a few of your previous publications if you have published before. However, don’t be discouraged if you haven’t published, we are always looking for work by talented unpublished writers. For writers living outside of the United States: please query at ARsubmissions@gmail.com to learn about our policies for submissions by non-U.S.-based writers.
