Note: MAXIMUM 6,500 words for submissions to the Free Editing Program.
Current theme: "Hold this—it's supposed to relieve stress"
Each 500-word section should be a complete story arc. Writers are free to submit stories of any genre, subject, or style (even poetry is welcome!), but submissions must begin with the above sentence. Feel free to use your imagination and come up with interesting ways to incorporate this idea. Submissions are due Fridays at midnight PST. We’ll post the best submissions each Monday!
We only work with one piece at a time per writer, so please wait to send more submissions until you receive notes on your first piece. We accept a maximum of 6,500 words for any submission to the Free Editing Program.
