We publish flash fiction, short fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction and artwork. We're open to most genres. We have a few specific guidelines we ask you to follow.
For example, your character might be of a particular faith and casually mentions this in conversation. Or you might be exploring the world of existential questions. Big or small, we want it all!
We welcome work from authors of all faiths or no faith. We ask that your work be respectful of religion and that any negative experiences be written in a tasteful and mature manner.
If your work requires a content warning, we'd appreciate it if you could put this at the top of your submission.
You can read our editors' bios to find out the kinds of work we'd love to see, but you are most welcome to submit anything outside of this too. If you're not too sure whether your work would be a good fit for us, don't self reject! Submit to us anyway as you never know where your work will take you.
Please note our word count limits for fiction and CNF are the 'sweet spot' of what we want to read; they are not absolute. Keep in mind any work over 5,000 words is unlikely to be accepted.
At the moment we are unable to pay for the pieces that we accept. We will champion your work on our social media accounts and wherever else we can spread the word!
Short stories: up to 3,500 words
Flash fiction: up to 800 words
Bring us your epic shorts or quiet reflections, your colourful characters and mysterious worlds. Genre-bending is encouraged!
Please submit up to 4 poems per person per submission period. We will only consider previously unpublished, original poetry.
Lead us through your heartfelt meditations and hushed prayers. Weave us poetry that make our hearts tender and our souls sing.
Up to 3,500 words
Tell us your stories of faith, of the way it has shaped your world view, of the way spirituality has connected you to a deeper part of yourself.
Photography, digital art, tradition art - whatever is your calling!
If you are submitting traditional art, please try to scan your artwork to the highest quality before submitting. If you take a photo of your artwork we are unlikely to accept it as the quality can often be poor.
