Submission Guidelines

Please thoroughly read our guidelines before submitting to Howling Mad Review.

We want to ensure that HMR remains a safe and inclusive space for all writers, and we will reject any pieces that do not align with that belief.

What We Read:

Flash Fiction

Any genre fiction (sci-fi, western, steampunk, erotica, horror, fantasy, thriller, mystery, etc) is encouraged and welcome. 500 word max.

One-Sentence Stories

One sentence stories may have a maximum of three punctuation marks, including the period. 500 word max.

Flash Nonfiction

Any flash nonfiction is welcome. We are looking for short pieces that do not sacrifice content for brevity. 500 word max.

Prose Poetry

We want anything that doesn’t quite fit into another genre: your hybrid essays. We especially welcome unexpected twists. 500 word max.
