Call for Submissions: Ryder Fiction Issue

Our annual fiction issue is coming in October and we are reading submissions from Bloomington writers. This year’s fiction issue will have a Halloween theme. Send your best spooky short story to Please put Fiction Submission in the subject line.

“Short” in this case means up to 5,000 words. Although we readily acknowledge that “we can be talked into almost anything,” in this case word length is not negotiable. The 5,001st word will not be considered, no matter how thrilling it might be.

Format: double-spaced in Word.

We look forward to reading your work!
