$8.00 USD

Response time is 4 - 6 weeks. If you wish to prioritize your submission, consider using our Tip Jar.

Each submission must be accompanied by an $8.00 reading fee which, if your submission is accepted for publication, will enter you in the Best of MFR competition for a prize of $500 in each of the four categories. Winners announced December 2019. 

Please send one submission at a time and wait for a response before sending another.

The word count for nonfiction is the same as short story. We think a 3,500 word max is probably a good idea but should you have outstanding work that surpasses this max, send it anyway.

We are looking for essays, lyrical essays, and creative nonfiction.
