Sub Genres: All / surprise us

Submission fee: $

We favor stories which aren't so over-engineered we can't hear the voices in the wind. Any style or subject is welcome, but try to create images without using objectifying language. Note: we're getting annoyed that the first description of a male character is his profession and the first description of a female character is her hair color. Prose should be 500-4,000 words.

Nonfiction - 4000 words max
