Ends on September 1, 2017

Deadline: September 1, 2017

Max. word length: 4,000 words as a rough guideline. We do make exceptions.

If you're submitting artwork: 12 pieces maximum. 


An issue about what people get up to after dark, when they think no one’s watching, or what goes on after everything’s shut. Secrets and shady stuff, or things more magical: the store mannequins come to life, elves appear to do the shoemaker’s work…? You show us. 

 We accept short fiction, flash/micro fiction, and nonfiction. 

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.
