Submitting Fiction for Straylight Online
_____________________________________

Straylight online does not mirror the content of the print edition. This publication is dedicated to exploring narrative of all fashion. We still look for stories and poems with a strong sense of place and moments that are character-centered rather than those that rely on plot turns and literary tricks. However, we welcome submissions that cross genre boundaries as well as those that explore the way that visual art, music, and literature combine to produce new manifestations of story and verse.

We would like to see stories under 1,000 words. Genre is less important than interesting characters, plot, and setting. If you have work that you would like to see featured on our site, please submit your story below. With your submission, please include a brief, 25 word bio written in the third person to be published with your work. We will not consider partial submissions or simultaneous submissions.

Response time is about eight weeks.

You may email our web staff with any questions or concerns at submissions@straylightmag.com
