What to Submit:

  • Literary submissions are invited in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, scripts and hybrid forms. Prose submissions (fiction and creative nonfiction) should be a maximum of 1500 words, and may be full pieces or excerpts of longer works. Scripts are limited to 5-10 minute performances.
  • Art submissions are invited in painting, drawing, photography and sculpture. Art projects consisting of series of themed images are preferred over individual pieces.
