We seek fiction animated by music, up to ~12,000 words. But truly, we don't care about the man's definition of art!  If it grabs us, we won't stop reading because of some stupid stupid's rules.  Just so we're on the same page, please submit an accompanying artist's statement explaining how your work engages the world of music. See our Manifesto and previous issues to learn what we're looking for. We pay  $12 per page (12pt Times New Roman/double spaced) with a cap of $250.

As and editor's note, what we're looking for is not always work explicitly dealing with music. We get a lot of "guy in a band" stories, and "I saw Hendrix in 69'" essays, and a lot of pieces dealng with diseases inflicted on musiicans (yes, it is a trope). We sometimes love those pieces, but it's an uphill battle. A phrase that describes what we're after is "Difficult connections" wtih music. That said, send us your best work and we will read it wiih open minds and gratutude.
