LIES TO LIVE BY

IMG_6872_sRGB (2)

We are looking for short fiction and creative nonfiction that is brave. Bravery to us is

creativity,
giving it a whirl,
following your own voice through the foliage.

We are looking for stories that dance with and against and outside of the page. They can be long or very short — there is no formal word limit.

Send us your previously unpublished prose and lend us your characters! We promise to respect every word.

Stories to be submitted via Submittable. We accept submissions during the months of February, May, August and November.
