Fiction

We are interested in stories with complex characters who make choices, unique and familiar plots that have been revitalized, and compelling structural elements. We want stories that deliberately utilize engaging language and points of view and in which place is as vital as any character. Send us stories that raise important questions, convince us to believe in the world of the story, and grab us by the collar to lead us through places like and unlike our own.

Submit up to five flash stories (please clarify when one story ends and the next begins) or one longer story (up to 6000 words). We don’t have a particular preference for genre–sci-fi, fantasy, “literary,” mystery, etc.–but instead want stories that transcend these labels as compelling works of fiction.

Send as a single Word document or PDF to bonfireslit@gmail.com with “Fiction Submission” in the subject line.
