Open Submissions to sell your short story.
“We ask our fiction writers to imagine their readers navigating a story with one finger poised over a mouse button.
Can your story stay that finger to the end? We favor fiction that is contrary in any number of ways, but our fiction typically defies traditional story form.
A story may bring us to closure, for example, without ever delivering an ending. And it may be as poetic as any poem.”
Contrary uses an online form. Stories should be no longer than 1,500 words.
$20 per author per issue, regardless of the number of works or nature of the submission.
