  • Additional info

    While we don't have specific word limits for fiction submissions, we are, like everyone else, constrained by final page counts. The longer the work, the more difficult it is to find room for it; on the other hand, we've never turned down something we loved. We’ll read stories and essays of any size, though typically we find it difficult to make room for works that run much longer than 7,500 words. We do not accept multiple submissions.
