Issue 21: Finale

Submissions open February 1, 2016 – April 1, 2016

General Guidelines:

We seek:

  • flash fiction (under 1,000 words) - 1 submission per reading period

We accept only original unpublished work. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that you notify us immediately should your work be accepted elsewhere.

Please submit only DOUBLE SPACED (except poetry) documents using 12 pt. Times New Roman (or similarly readable font).

To ensure fairness, The Quotable has a blind submissions process. Remove all identifying information - name, email address, etc. - from your manuscripts. We will decline any manuscript that contains the author's information.

Cover letters should include your name and a brief bio to be used in the event of publication. These are added through Submittable -- please do not include them in the document you upload.

Contact us with questions.

We will make every effort to respond to every submission, but if the issue has been released and you have not heard from us, then we thank you for your interest, wish you luck placing your piece elsewhere, and encourage you to submit again.

Upon acceptance, The Quotable acquires first serial publications rights, after which the copyright reverts to the author. All accepted work will be archived on the site for so long as the site manager(s) should deem appropriate.

The editors of The Quotable envision a world in which all artists are paid handsomely for the considerable efforts they make to enrich mankind. While we labor toward that utopia, however, the only payment we can offer is the esteem of seeing your name in print and your work appreciated.
