For our print magazine, we accept short fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and comics—regardless of genre, style, or origin. Experimental, nontraditional, and boundary-pushing literature is strongly encouraged. Show us your wildest and weirdest! To get an idea of the kind of work we look for, we strongly encourage you to check out a past issue of F(r)iction, available in our shop.
On our blog, we look to feature underrepresented voices and view points, with writing that challenges the norm and eschews the commonplace. Additionally, we want to be a home for webcomics that explore issues both universal and extraordinary.
Be sure to also check out our formatting guidelines. Please read all guidelines thoroughly before submitting.
Please note that 100% of both our contest and general submission fees go to paying our contributors.

Other notes:
