Genre-Specific Submission Instructions
Fiction: Submit up to 10 pages (submissions at the upper end of this length spectrum will need to be of exceptional quality to be considered) to email@example.com, or use Submittable. We receive any of the following fiction: flash fiction, postcard fiction, short fiction, experimental fiction, a novel excerpt that can stand alone, or a combination of these subgenres. Please do not resubmit or send send additional submissions until your first submission has been responded to. A submission lacking mailing address and/or bio will be considered incomplete.
Poetry: Submit up to 6 pages of poetry via. Sumbittable. If your poem is spaced in a particular way, please make sure to use spaces, never tabs, so we can accurately replicate your layout. A submission lacking mailing address and/or bio will be considered incomplete. Due to the high volume of submissiones, poetry submissions can only be submitted via. Submittable.
Nonfiction: We encourage you to submit experimental interviews, articles, reviews, and creative nonfiction. Please note that filling Station will generally not accept reviews of non-experimental literature. We are looking to engage with and draw attention to literature that pushes the boundaries of genre, form, etc. Send 2 pieces of any kind or a query to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also sumbit your work with Submittable. A submission lacking mailing address and/or bio will be considered incomplete.
