Nonfiction

Max pieces: 1

For nonfiction, we are seeking literary essays of all kinds (memoir, lyric essay, personal essay, nature writing, literary journalism, etc), as long as they have emotional depth, crisp language, an engaging voice, and a strong, coherent structure. Essays should surprise us with their imagery and their insights about life.

Poetry

Max pieces: 6

We are interested in any strong writing of a literary variety, but are especially partial to poetry that engages the reader through a distinctive voice—be it lyric, narrative, etc.

Fiction

Max pieces: 1

We do not publish theme issues. We are interested in any strong writing of a literary variety, but are especially partial to fiction in the modern realist tradition. We have no set page lengths for any genre, but we seldom publish short-shorts or pieces longer than 25 pages.
