We accept pieces of nonfiction, 2,000 words or less, that were first performed in front of an audience. We publish a new story every Wednesday.

To submit, please email an audio or video recording of you performing a piece, either in front of an audience or in your own home. Please include your name, the title of the piece, your contact information, and the name of the show where you performed the piece.  Email to We aim to respond to all submissions within one month.

Most pieces are published without print versions, but if we choose to publish your piece with a print version we will pay $30 in exchange for first serial North American and electronic rights. We do not pay for audio/video pieces since we do not request rights.
