Submit only one story at a time. American Literary Review seeks distinctive, character-driven stories.
We have no set maximum for length, but stories under 8,000 words have the best chance of publication. We generally avoid novel excerpts unless they can stand alone as stories.
Short fiction submitted for publication in the American Literary Review must:
* be typewritten
* be double-spaced
* have the author's name, address, and phone number on the first page
