Submissions Open, Contest Extended

New Year, New Yearning for Words

Send us your best!

Submissions Are Open

It's 2024, which is strange and exciting and horrifying, but that also means we're open for submissions in fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and mixed media. Send us your hopes, your dreams, but also your weird little goblins and the moments of softness between trees and, honestly, anything you think might make us pause and rethink our place in the world.On another note, we're extending the deadline for our collaborative fiction contest to May 15, because collaborations take time, which is one of many things the world is short on. If you already submitted and your first submission felt rushed, please feel free to send a slowed-down version through Submittable as a message.Until then, I hope you keep writing. The world needs it.Keene ShortEditor-in-ChiefAtticus Review
