Submissions Now Open

Now through July 31, 2013, Forest Avenue Press is open for short story submissions for the Oregon anthology edited by Liz Prato and slated for a May 2014 release.

All pieces must be submitted through Submittable. No e-mailed or snail-mailed stories will be accepted. Submit your work here:

Writers who live in Oregon or Southwest Washington are welcome to send their work in for consideration; this is a regional anthology, and if you live elsewhere but have roots in the area, you may submit but please explain your connection to Oregon or Southwest Washington in your cover letter.

We request double spaced manuscripts, all pages numbered, normal 12 point font (Times New Roman preferred). You may include a cover letter in the comments box. Maximum length is 6,000 words, although we prefer shorter lengths and welcome flash fiction. Please put the title of your story on each page, but not your name or any other identifying information. Failure to follow this guideline may result in your submission being disqualified.

Stories must be original and previously unpublished; if the work has appeared anywhere on the Internet, even on your own blog, we consider that published. Only one submission per author. Simultaneous submissions are okay as long as you notify us immediately if the story is accepted elsewhere.

If accepted, you will grant first North American rights to Forest Avenue Press. Payment is two copies of the anthology. Forest Avenue is committed to giving maximum exposure to its authors; there will be media coverage and public readings to celebrate the publication.
