A Word of Advice

Before submitting, please look at what we’ve previously published (most recently by browsing the Stream and overall by checking out any of our Seasonal anthologies) and the 2016 contest winners’ work.

We welcome new and hybrid forms, but it helps to have an idea of the kind of work that we’ve chosen to share.
