For this year's themed issue (23.1), we're looking for flash and essays that focus upon meals, feasts, hunger, recipes, sustainable agriculture, food stamps, food deserts, cooking, food porn, last meals, etc!
For our print issues, we read flash and essays up to 6,000 words. Nonfiction pieces longer than 6,000 words should be submitted to our annual Trifecta, not here. We generally do not read work longer than 6,000 words except for our Trifecta.
We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if the essay is taken elsewhere the moment that happens.
