YR will be closing fiction submissions by the end of day on April 30th to prepare for the upcoming issue. Fiction submissions will open again in the summer.
One short story (up to 5000 words) or up to 3 pieces of flash fiction (less than 1000 words a piece). If submitting 3 shorter works, please include all pieces in one file.
Please submit in standard manuscript format (12-point font, double spaced, Times New Roman).
Do not withdraw your work and resubmit a revised version; all pieces should be in their final form when you send them out.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please let us know if a piece is accepted elsewhere by manually withdrawing your submission.If a flash piece needs to be withdrawn, please notify us via the notes tool on Submittable. Submit in .docx, .doc, or .pdf format.
If you already have a submission pending with us, please wait for a response before sending another.
It's a good idea to look at our most recent issue before submitting, to get a sense of the size and style of work we tend to like.
Please wait at least 120 days to query about the status of your manuscript. Questions and queries may be sent to email@example.com.
