PFN – Call for Submissions to little somethings press. Theme: “Deserts”

October 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

little somethings press is currently open for submissions.

In each issue, little somethings press publishes 30 pieces of flash fiction, flash memoir, poetry, and up to 10 pieces of visual art. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let lsp know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

This small independent press makes everything by hand (with love), so responses may take up to six months.

issue six

This project is partially funded by a City of Tempe – Community Arts Grant. Space will be held in issue six for Tempe-based, Tempe-connected, or Arizona-based artists; however, all are encouraged to apply! Below is the call.

What makes a desert? Definitions of ‘desert’ include arid land, lifeless water, desolate areas, wild lands, or home for most of us in the Southwest. In issue six, we want to explore what perceptions shape our climate. Send us your related flash fiction, flash memoir, and poetry. Prose should be no more than 300 words, and poetry no more than 12 lines. Submit all writing in a single .doc or .docx file. Send all submissions to by October 1, 2023. 

Contributors will receive a small honorarium and a contributor copy as payment for their submissions. We work with First North American Serial Rights. However, all rights revert back to the author upon publication.
