The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Liquid Imagination - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
Silver Pen Writers

Give us something unexpected and well written. Technique, voice, characterization, and language will all play a part in our decision to publish. Amaze us with your writing, use of language, sense of story, and memorable characters. Give us a story readers will not be able to forget and will eagerly recommend to others.

Liquid Imagination seeks intense, existential, quality stories of a literary nature above and beyond the speculative fiction we publish. It DOES NOT need fantasy or surrealistic themes. We want quality writing, and we want your story to mean something, to have a purpose.

We are looking for ultra-short fiction of all genres that engages the reader with a frugality of words. The objective is to achieve exceptional writing that is acutely focused, concise and conveys a strong sense of story.
