Ends on

Here are the fiction submission guidelines:

  •  1-3 pieces of short fiction or flash fiction (10 page/3,000 word maximum as a total length of submission) 
  • We generally view each piece individually, so feel free to submit pieces that vary in style or subject matter. If you prefer to have your submission viewed as a collection, please note that in the cover letter.
  • Send a single file, .doc/.docx preferred. 

Include your artist statement/cover letter, a short 3rd person bio, as well as any relevant links to your website/social media. 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw pieces from consideration if they are accepted elsewhere. If your work is accepted, you agree to give The Closed Eye Open online publishing and archival rights; following publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist. We ask that you credit The Closed Eye Open if the work is published elsewhere in the future. 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
