Fiction

Sub Genres: Literary, Humor, Speculative

We like the punchy and bizarre, the speculative, but also that throwback Kmart realism, anything that makes us cry, or laugh, or ideally, cry and laugh at the same time.

Nonfiction

Submit your single-sentence memoir, your lyric essay, and hell, maybe even your heady researched work that explores how experience and identity impact the way we move through the world.

Art

Send us your cut-and-paste collages of cat pictures you printed out from the internet, your watercolors painted with spilled coffee, your photos of plastic bags caught in trees, rippling in the wind like ghosts.

Comics

Tell us a story, a joke, break our fucking heart. Single-panel, multi-panel? So long as there's only one sentence we're good. JPEGs work best–>attach all files to an email sent to completesentencelit@gmail.com.
