Submission Guidelines

-ality only accepts previously unpublished fiction submissions. We will happily publish work from both established and emerging writers. While the electronic medium allows us to present stories of virtually unlimited length, we do ask that you limit submissions to less than 8,500 words. If you're submitting flash fiction (less than 1000 words), you may include up to three pieces in a single submission. Simultaneous submissions are accepted as long as we're made aware of any withdrawn pieces.

Experimental forms and hypertext submissions will be considered. However, because they require special formatting changes, they must be of exceptional quality. Likewise, genre submissions will also be considered so long as they explore the interests of the journal. The content is what we're after.

Our Fall reading period is between September 1st and December 15th. The Spring reading period opens February 1st and closes April 15th.
