News BitsThe American Short(er) Fiction Prize, for stories of 1,000 words or less, runs February 15 through May 15 (note new deadline), 2011. Regular submissions are open now.
We've simplified our submissions process a little. We ask that you do three things:
- Read the guidelines. We have separate guidelines for our Short Story Contest and regular submissions. (We consider anything not a contest entry--be it a novella, a story, a piece of flash fiction--as a regular submission.) Both sets of guidelines are below.
- Pay the submission fee. Our payment page is here. Payment is handled via PayPal. (Looking to purchase a subscription or a copy of the current issue? Please do that through our publisher's store here.)
- Submit your story via our online Submission Manager. Once PayPal handles your transaction, you'll be directed to the Submission Manager.
