Just a note to let writers know that submissions of Fiction and Flash Fiction have opened for our ninth issue. This includes the Feedback Option and the Full Critique Option. To thank our submitters for their support of TLR, every submitter will be able to download a free digital copy of our latest issue, once the upload process is complete.
Poetry and Nonfiction submissions will open next Monday, September 19. Editors Kelly and Yi Shun just needed a little extra time to go through the large number of submissions we received in the last reading period.
We’re happy—make that ecstatic—to report that submissions for issue 8 far exceeded our expectations. That means we can easily meet our commitment to pay poetry contributors a minimum of $50. Payment for short stories this time will be over $220, while flash fiction and flash nonfiction will both be at their maximums of $50.
Submissions will remain open through the end of the year. Please read the guidelines for each category before submitting—the info there will help you select the work with the best chance of publication.
