The submission period will open on June 1, 2015 and close on June 30, 2015. We are looking for short stories, of length between 1,000 and 10,000 words. We will accept fiction and narrative (creative) non-fiction. We are looking for exceptional work from ALL genres. Stories do NOT need to be based in Ohio, although we do require authors have some tie to the state. (Find more information on submission requirements here.)

This is an opportunity for publication, NOT a contest. All stories will be fairly considered, and those deemed most suited for publication will receive an offer. The book will be distributed to local retailers and sold online. The book will also be released as an e-book to the major markets. Tentative release date is November 1, 2015.

Submitting your story to one of our workshops is a great way to get some objective feedback to help you get your story in shape. Learn more about our Writers’ Workshops here. We also encourage you to browse our other anthologies to get an idea of the caliber of work we publish.
