We are looking for short stories, short shorts, novellas, novel excerpts (that stand alone), and translations. For translations, please confirm that translation rights are available. The word limit is 20,000. Please send only one piece at a time, unless the pieces are very short (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. We attempt to respond to all prose submissions within twelve weeks, though we are not always able to do so. 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.
