Fleas on the Dog Open 4 Submissions

web site

Deadline: August 30, 2020

We’re the site your teacher warned you about! The no frills brown bag in your face thumb your nose online psychotropolis for the literarily insane. Get committed today! The infamous dude sextet is bustlin’, hustlin’, itchin’ and twitchin’ for QUALITY short fiction, nonfiction , poetry, plays and screenplays that smell ripe and kick ass for our cage-rattling upcoming Issue 7.

If we like what you submit we’ll be all over you; if we don’t we promise to be gentle, especially if it’s your first time.

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 30 days, hopefully sooner. (Why should it take months?)

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, nonfiction, poetry, or play) 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 unless solicited.

Submit to only one category 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
