Submitting Fiction for 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.
