Poetry

We have no minimum or maximum word count for poetry submissions, and submissions of multiple poems are allowed.

Fiction - 3000 words max

Max words: 3000

Length is flexible with no minimum word count. We have published flash fiction and longer pieces, though we have found that between 1,500 and 3,000 words is a good sweet spot.

Nonfiction - 3000 words max

Max words: 3000

We are looking for personal essays and book and film reviews on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. We especially like work that uses personal experience to make us rethink what we know about the past and the present. Length is flexible, although 3,000 words is a good middle ground to keep in mind for readability.
