We're excited to announce a whole new set of themes for next year! You can submit to any of these themes from this point onward - as usual, just take a quick look at our submissions guidelines first. We're already looking forward to reading your stories!

As usual, we're looking for short fiction between 800 and 3000 words (apart from our Short & Sweet Flash Fiction theme, which has a 1000 word limit), and all interpretations of the theme are welcome. Send your unpublished stories to us via email, but don't forget to take a look at our submission guidelines for some handy tips before you do. Mostly they exist to make our lives easier, but there's also some useful stuff in there for you, too. And naturally, thank you for trusting us with your work!
