Help writers make a living by demystifying the business journey and explaining techniques for maximally competitive stories.
We publish stories that brilliantly demonstrate the specific storycraft skill we're teaching in each issue. Concept and clarity are more important than prose.
POEMS ONLY - We're expanding content for our Fairy Tales (#4) / Maps & Biomes (#5) issues
PROMPT OPTION ONE:
In a poem 30 words or less, capture an adulthood dilemma so universal it transcends culture and time--then explain it so a child can understand.
Any era. Any world. Any hero or antihero.
Focus on the hardest-earned lessons of your life. The things you WISH someone had explained to you earlier, and wrap that wisdom in a package "younger you" would have adored.
PROMPT OPTION TWO:
In a poem 30 words or less, describe a meaningful moment with nature. Any world, any genre. Show us settings fundamentally at war with character needs. Describe interesting weather. Or show us what nature means to you.
