It's our job as writers to find the moment of crisis in a story—that moment when a character's normal life has been jolted in some profound way. We need to let the reader share in this moment.—Patrick Hicks

Other considerations:
Stories about families of all configurations are welcome! (Writing Guidelines)
Most submissions run 1,500 to 6,000 words, but up to 12,000-word stories are fine.
Reading fee is $15 per story. Please, no more than 3 submissions per category.
Winners and finalists will be officially announced in the June 1 bulletin, and contacted directly by the previous week.
As always, simultaneous submissions are okay. Please notify immediately if your submission is accepted elsewhere.
Stories accepted for publication are presented in a highly regarded print publication where literary short fiction persists in the real world and beyond the next post.
