Bridge Eight Editors

Ends in 5 days, 5 hours

We tend to accept stories between 1,000 & 2500 words in length. 

Beyond that, we’re seeking well-developed characters and fascinating content we can’t stop thinking about. We do not publish genre fiction, but we are open to experimental styles and allegorical approaches. If your work is a tad bit absurd, even better!

Please use a standard, 12-point font, double-spaced.
