Bartleby Snopes



We want quality fiction that grabs us and doesn't let go. Stories we wish we had written. For examples of what we're looking for, read current and previous issues.

For both flash and long fiction, we're looking for characters, plot, stories, etc. Keep us engaged by maintaining focus and forward momentum. Strive for Poe's prescription of a single effect and Aristotle's criterion of a rising action. Abide by your favorite description of what constitutes a story; one of ours is by Flannery O'Connor: ". . . a story is a complete dramatic action . . ."
