Fleas on the Dog submission guidelines

web site

  • Deadline: September 16, 2019

We are a collective of writers/editors who publish a non profit online magazine for those who are on the avant garde and outside the box.

WHAT WE LIKE

Fiction: We take pretty much everything. Mainstream, traditional, literary, barbaric yawps, flash, metafiction, experimental, sci/fi, speculative, fantasy, mystery, micro, nano, grunge, bad (but it better be good!), modernist, post-modernist, spamlit, kitschlit, retro, metro, outsider, novel excerpts, one or two act plays, graphic stories, even comics.  Our only criterion is quality.


Nonfiction: Kick ass op-eds, essays and articles on topical topics that are sure to p*** somebody off, memoirs, manifestos, reviews, games, nonsense and other cogent junk. Politically incorrect is welcome as long as it doesn’t devolve into invective.

WHO YOU ARE
Anybody whose engines burn when they write. You can have won literary awards or never published at all. Degrees don’t impress us—it’s your work that matters.

SUBMISSIONS


ONLINE PUBLISHING GUIDELINES

  • There is no submission fee. There is no remuneration for work we publish, either, but what the heck, you're going to be famous! We'll get back to you in about 10 days, hopefully sooner. (Why should it take weeks?)
  • Fiction/Nonfiction: Up to 5000 words. Length is less important than quality. For works longer than 5000 words query the editors about possible serialization.
  • Submissions should be on a Microsoft Word doc or docx file. Use a sensible font. Double space format. Stuff like grammar and sentence structure  is important unless your work deliberately exploits bad grammar and lack of structure. (We can tell the difference.) Include a brief bio with your submission and publishing credits, if any. Send your submission as an e-mail attachment to editors@fleasonthedog.com (or type in the link in the email address).
  •  Include the genre (fiction or non fiction) and title of your work in the subject bar.  Simultaneous submissions are okay, just let us know when your work is accepted elsewhere. Multiple submissions are not okay. Submit to only one category (fiction or nonfiction) per issue. If you have been published by us please do not resubmit for six months unless solicited. We retain the first rights of your work for a period of three months. After this time rights revert back to the author. If you should republish the story/article please acknowledge that it was first published by www.fleasonthedog.com
