Submit your story (no more than one at a time) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the type of submission (Fiction, Flash Fiction, Review) in the subject line of your email. Submit the story as an attachment (Word doc preferred) in standard manuscript format. If you want to include a couple of lines about yourself in the body of the email, that’s fine, but we don’t want to read your autobiography or publishing history. If we want to know more about you, we’ll ask.
Please, please, please edit your work. And understand that even if you do, the final editing will be carried out by us. If we want to make any substantive changes, we’ll discuss them with you.
Replies within 4-6 weeks, give or take (hey, we have jobs, too, you know). If you don’t hear from us within two months, a reminder is fine.
We aim to post 2 stories per week. Please note that you may have to wait a few weeks before your story is published.
Pulpwood Fiction cannot pay for publication … yet.
Fiction: Up to 3,000 words (yes, we count). If you don’t know if your work is Southern or not, it’s not.
Flash Fiction: No more than 1,000 words, and they should be 1,000 damn good ones. Surprise, shock or scare us.
Reviews: Pulpwood Fiction publishes reviews of books and movies. Query first. No standard length on reviews, but keep it to 1,000 words. We’re pretty flexible on what we review, as long as you ask first.
