PFN – Call for Submissions to The MockingOwl Roost. Theme: “Beauty”

August 31 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

MockingOwl Roost Submission Guidelines

Themes are intentionally vague to leave the concept up to the writer’s interpretation.

We have some specific things we’re looking for, but even if your work doesn’t fit these exactly, send it anyway (unless they break our “we don’t publish” guidelines). We’re dedicated to helping writers get published in almost any genre or type, even if it doesn’t fit our “norm.” We love unique!

  • Flash fiction (250 words or fewer): Any genre
  • Short fiction (under 5,000 words): Any genre
  • Lengthy short stories and serialized fiction: If you have a serialized story or work of fiction longer than 5,000 words, please send them along. We love long-running, well-connected stories.
  • Opinion: On just about any topic out there
  • Poetry: Long and short form
  • Personal essays: Have an interesting essay? Submit the full manuscript.
