This year, we're looking for Valentine's Day stories that show us a new and unexpected love.
Maybe this is an anti-love story, a bizarre love story, or a dark love story. Your love story can be absurd or unusual. It might explore love in its different forms: between humans, between humans and pets (yeah, we read that New Yorker story, too), for pizza. We're especially interested in seeing love stories that aren't between cishet characters.
February is just around the corner. Send us unpublished fiction, not reprints, up to 3000 words. All other Story submissions guidelines apply. If you have another submission in our queue, that's okay; send us a piece here and be patient with our reply time.
PS Erotica will not be considered. There are places that are a better fit. Stories with sexual violence and sexual assault will be declined for publication.
