This submission form is for consideration for our online monthly issue only. Submit to our Fall/Winter 2019 Print issue here.
The essay is a powerful medium and we prefer those that stretch their containers to the breaking point. We consider essays to be writing from the perspective lens of a singular subject, where reflection or rumination leads to a conclusion. We like essays that are argumentative, declarative, inquisitive, or just downright outrageous. Write us an essay about recovering from your first love from the perspective of your dog or write us an essay about your dog's first heartbreak from your perspective. Feel free to make fiction and non-fiction one in the same. Essays must be in English and must not exceed 1000 words. If your work has been translated from another language, please indicate the original language. We also welcome recordings of writers reading an excerpt of their essays up to 5 minutes (5:00) in length. Please include a high-quality image associated with the tone of your essay. If you do not own the image please include the name of the source in your submission so we can credit appropriately. If an image does not accompany your submission we will assign it one.
