Submissions Now Open: “Columbus, Ohio” Anthology

We are now officially accepting submissions for our next anthology, theme: Columbus, Ohio!  Please submit your short story today!

Submission Guidelines:
Entries should be prose, 1,500 to 7,000 words in length.  Submissions over 10,000 words will not be accepted.  There is no minimum word limit.

Stories must not exceed reasonable content for a PG-13 rating (language, violence and sexual themes with purpose are fine, excessive violence and graphic sexuality should be avoided).  More info here.

The theme, “Columbus, Ohio”, can be applied liberally. It does not have to be modern era Columbus.  It may be prehistoric Central Ohio, future Central Ohio, or even Columbus or one of its suburbs in a parallel universe. More information and theme examples here.

Fiction and non-fiction are both fine, however, we are expecting narratives (stories).
