For our upcoming 50th issue, we increased the honorarium for the accepted stories to $50 and one printed copy. Also, we guarantee a 3-week turnaround time. However, we require a $3/submission service charge ($1 goes to the Submittable). This a temporarily measure; we will return to no fee-submissions for issue 51.

Stories 500 words of fewer, of course. Only fiction.



Short on Sugar, High on Honey: Seven to Thirteen Word Love Stories.  Please send up to four 7-13 word love stories without titles. Send each story separately. For tracking purposes, give each story a pseudo-title in this format: "SOS Your First name Your Last name" i.e. "SOSFyodorDostoyevsky." Assign a number for each additional submission i.e. "SOSFyodorDostoyevsky1."

This is an anthology that is not associated with Vestal Review magazine.
