Submission Guidelines

*We are closed for submissions until the fall. Please check back in September.*

We accept short stories under 5,000 words. For flash fiction, the word limit is 1,000. We will consider one short story per author per submission period, and three flash fiction pieces per author per submission period.

Your submission should include:
1. A short (3-4 sentence) biographical paragraph explaining who you are as an author. Include any websites/social media.
2. Include your piece in the body of the email. We do not open attachments.
3. Let us know the total word count and the genre (if it defies genre, note that too).

We aim to respond within six weeks.

Who can send us work? Everyone. Anyone. We read all work with hopes of finding a masterpiece, and we select work solely on the basis of craft. But if there is something unique about you, feel free to share it with us. We are a community of writers, musicians, and artists growing with every issue. You do not have to live in Santa Barbara to be published in the journal, but let us know if you're local.

There is no fee to submit your work. We accept simultaneous submissions but let us know if your story is accepted elsewhere.

The title of Volume 3 will be Bellatrix, a star in Orion's Belt whose name means "Female Warrior."

We cannot offer payment to contributors, but if your piece goes into a print version of the journal, we will send you a copy of the journal.
