We are looking for original short fiction up to 2,500 words. Downloading past issues will offer the most useful indication of our interests.

At this time, we do not publish genre fiction.

All submissions must be previously unpublished.

Submissions that have been offered simultaneously to other publications will be considered, as long as your submission is promptly withdrawn upon acceptance elsewhere.

**Flash fiction only (<500 words, excluding title): You may send up to three (3) works in a single document.

We will attempt to respond to all short fiction submissions within three to six months, possibly sooner.

AUTHOR RIGHTS: If accepted, The Brooklyner is granted first North American serial, promotional, archival, and non-exclusive anthology (web and/or print) rights. Copyright reverts to the author upon publication. If the selected work is subsequently published in another venue, we ask that The Brooklyner be sourced as first publication.

NOTE: Unless you indicate otherwise in your cover letter, your submission will be considered for publication on the web – which may include feature in an online issue – and for publication in the print journal.
