Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which is merely imaginary.... The real is the genuine, the reliable, what we can safely lean on. It is akin to truthful, valuable, even delightful. Its opposite is not illusion, but the fake, the counterfeit, that which can’t be trusted, has no monetary value. Literature often deals in illusion but can be real in the sense that they nurture and enlarge us, help to make sense of experiences, in our reality issue we want your tales of the real.

We accept short fiction, flash/micro fiction, and nonfiction. Given the focus of this issue, we are especially open to travel memoir and travel-related fiction in this instance. We do not accept poetry.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, please submit only one piece per theme. Additional submissions will unfortunately not be considered.
Please also note that if we have published your work in the magazine, we won't consider publishing your work again until a year has passed.
