let’s write a short story!
Now might be as good a time as any to dust off that short story you started when you were an undergrad. We are reading submissions from Bloomington writers for our annual summer fiction issue. What do we mean by “Bloomington writers”? We’re not really sure. A Bloomington address would help. But if you attended IU and no longer live here, that would be fine as well. Maybe you passed through town on your way to Evansville? Any connection will do, no matter how tangential.
Please put “Fiction Submission” in the subject line and send your story to email@example.com
A few guidelines….
1 – Double-spaced in Word. Do not indent to indicate a new paragraph; a hard return will suffice.
2 – Word limit: 5,000 words. This is not negotiable. The 5001st word will not be considered, no matter how amazing it may be.
3 – Wear a mask and wash your hands for 20 seconds under hot water.
Send your story right away. He who hesitates is … how does that expression go? No matter. We look forward to reading your work!
