The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

The Bureau Dispatch



Description
The Bureau Dispatch is a celebration of working writers: forging onward alone but together; a collection of one-of-a-kind micro stories accompanied by photographs of writers at their places of work—where the focus is as much on the people behind the words as it is on the stories themselves.

We want fiction that is compelling and beautifully-crafted; narratives that leave the reader breathless and changed. The kind of story that, when all is said and done, elicits a resounding “sh*t, yeah!”

We are open to all narratives, but are currently partial to ones that explore the theme of DISPATCH:

verb

1. to send off to a destination or for a purpose.

2. to deal with (something or someone) quickly and efficiently.

noun

1. the sending of someone or something to a destination or for a purpose.

2. a report.
