Stories or excerpts from novels should be about five thousand words but this is not a strict rule. Both flash fiction and extended stories are welcome. For novel excerpts, you might want to include a synopsis that sets up the context of the excerpt, so that the excerpt doesn't have to be a stand alone piece. If adding such an introduction, please keep it brief. It may not be included if the editor thinks it's unnecessary.

Poems can be of any length. If some verse lines are exceptionally long, it may necessary to have a line break. But this usually doesn't happen. If we encounter a problem with online formatting we will let you know. We recognize and cherish that the layout of the poem is part of the art. If you wish, you may submit up to 5 poems on one submission.
