Submission Guidelines

Our aim is to bring you gritty and interesting short fiction across multiple genres from a range of talented writers.

Our submission guidelines:

Flash Fiction  — Submit a well written story of 700 words or less. Post the title of the story and the word count in the subject line. Within the email please write a short bio.
Send your story to the following email address:  close2thebone@hotmail.com 

Short Story — Submit a well written story of 3,000 words or less. Post the title of the story and the word count in the subject line.Within the email please write a short bio. We were previously accepting 5,000 words or less, but that is too long for the attention span of internet reading. We are pushing it with 3,000 words, so if you can get under that all the better. But if your story needs to hit 3,000 words to work then go for it.

We are looking for bank robberies gone bad, double crossing bastards going at it, serial killers with a heart (maybe literally), redemption and revenge. We like it violent, thoughtful and well written. We will consider other genres such as western, science fiction and maybe fantasy, as long as they fit in with the grit theme we are looking for. Please take the time to edit— look over your story for spelling, grammar and flow.  We want to publish you. If it’s good but needs work we’ll let you know, if you don’t like criticism and are happy to stay as you are, then don’t submit.  As we said, we like to publish you and will offer help with advice.

If you have any problems with feedback please get in touch with Craig.  He can be contacted on crdtdddcd@gmail.com.
