what we want: short fiction/”flash fiction”, visual art, poetry, creative non-fiction/personal essays.

what we can’t take: political essays, super edgy stuff, subliterary “genre” fiction.

(i tend to decline work that is political in nature, or clearly asserting an ideological/political point of view. stuff that uses political themes to ambiguous ends is OK. if in doubt, send it over and i’ll let you know.)

how to submit: send your submission to flulandmag [at] gmail [dot] com.

submit in rtf, doc, or docx. please no pdfs.

if for some reason you are unable to email me, you can submit work via direct message on Twitter, but email submissions are greatly preferred.

follow me on Twitter at @flulandmag (

feel free to include a small bio with links to your blog, books, social media, etc.

submit under any name you’re comfortable with.

the ideal length for fiction is 400-3000 words. an ideal poetry submission contains three or more poems. (i rarely accept submissions of a single poem, unless it’s an inordinately long and/or special work.)

I try to read each submission in full, and I never send form letters – this means that I can’t respond to your work as quickly as I would like to.

if you haven’t heard back in ten days, feel free to contact me.

if I don’t get back to you at all, something went wrong and you should resubmit your work.
