Anthology submissions are closed.

untethered is excited to announce its debut anthology, coming Summer 2018!

We’re publishing the first-ever (we think) Canadian anthology of short short prose that includes all three literary genres: fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. We’re looking for flash fiction, postcard stories, micro-fiction, short-shorts, flash memoirs, prose poems, poetic prose, vignettes—whatever you want to call them—anything 750 words or less.

We have a few special submission guidelines:

  • pieces must be written by a Canadian citizen or resident
  • you can submit up to four pieces in total in Word, Pages, or plain text format
  • each piece must be a maximum of 750 words
  • no line breaks (paragraph breaks are fine)
  • work may be previously unpublished, or published in a Canadian literary magazine
  • please include a 50-100 word bio

Send what you have that fits into this elusive, dangerously short form to and let’s fill in this literary black hole together!

Contributors will be given the choice to receive a small honorarium or a copy of the book.
