We read on a 4 month rolling basis. If your piece is accepted, we will let you know. We do not write rejection letters, so if you do not hear back from us within 4 months, there is no need to contact us in order to withdraw your submission.
Pedestrian #2 (Submissions close 1 October): Please send us your polished, edited work. Up to 5 poems or two prose pieces. Stories up to 7,000 words will be considered.
We pride ourselves on being a home for traditional length short stories that other journals disqualify because of length. 14 pgs is not a "novella" to us.
Work that is formally innovative is encouraged, provided it is also of some substance. We generally favor literary fiction, but genre work is also welcome if it is well-written and stands out in some way.
Original artworks will also be considered for publication. Please send 25-50 images in the form of jpeg files.
Pedestrian Poets: Got a poem and picture that are your best? Send them for consideration.
Full Length and Chap Books:
Currently, we are not seeking submissions of unsolicited typescripts for consideration.
