We are looking for short stories, short shorts, novellas, novel excerpts (that stand alone), and translations (please confirm that translation rights are available). Our limit is 20,000 words. We attempt to respond to all prose submissions within twelve weeks.
Please send only one piece at a time, unless the pieces are under 1,000 words. We will consider submissions that have been offered simultaneously to other publications, as long as you make it clear that it is a simultaneous submission and withdraw your submission immediately upon acceptance elsewhere.
If you are a current subscriber, you may submit fee-free through the category Fiction-Subscriber. If you'd like to subscribe, please go to the NER website.
