Submission Guidelines

Submissions are open for fall 2022

Reconnecting. As the world has mostly opened back up after the initial shock of the pandemic, people have begun to lower their defenses again. This issue we’re looking for flash fiction that touches on the various aspects of establishing connections. Your stories do not have to deal directly with the pandemic; use this as a springboard for your imagination. Maybe your story deals with isolation (the fear of reconnecting) or being pushed away while trying to establish a connection. Send us your short short stories about spiritual ties, relationships, working remotely or anything else with some sort of Christian root/foundation to it.

General Guidelines

All genres are welcome. We seek flash with a spiritual and literary quality to it—please no cursing, sexual imagery, or horror.

General submissions should be 1,000 words or less. We invite you to submit two shorter pieces as long as they fall under 1,000 words total. Please submit multiple stories in the same document using Times New Roman 12 pt or similar and use double spacing. You may send it in a Word doc or in the body of your email. Include your name and a short bio (50 words max). No poetry, please.

We will let you know within 6 weeks whether your flash has been accepted. Please only submit one story/document at a time. If you have not heard back within 4 weeks feel free to reach out to us. Submissions which do not follow our guidelines will be deleted without being read. Please wait three months before submitting again if your story is not selected.

We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if your story is placed somewhere else.

We are a baby online lit journal and are unable to pay. Our guidelines are subject to change if our inbox explodes (we hope it does).

Online rights: If your story is accepted, we require exclusive electronic rights to it for 3 months and non-exclusive rights indefinitely so we can include it in our online archives.

Print Rights: We require non-exclusive print rights, for potential annual anthologies and promotional materials. All other rights remain yours.

Please email your submission to with the subject line as follows: “SUBMISSIONS, STORY TITLE.”

We look forward to reading your work!
