Fleas on the Dog - submissions open for Issue #15


New Deadline: November 1, 2023

Deadline: November 15, 2023

Submissions are now open for Issue #15. 

There is no submission fee. There is no remuneration for work we publish, either, but what the heck, you're going to be famous! Owing to the volume of submissions we receive we will only contact those authors we have selected for publication. If you do not hear from us at the time the new issue is featured consider your submission declined. We'll get back to you in about 30 days, usually sooner. (Why should it take months?)

Fiction: Up to 5000 words! Length is less important than quality. For works longer than 5000 words query the editors about possible serialization.

  • Submissions should be on a Microsoft Word doc or docx file. 
  • Use a sensible font. 
  • Double space format. 

Stuff like grammar and sentence structure  is important unless your work deliberately exploits bad grammar and lack of structure. (We can tell the difference.) Include a brief bio with your submission and publishing credits, if any. 

Send your submission as an e-mail attachment to editors@fleasonthedog.com (or type in the link in the email address).

Include the genre (fiction, poetry, or play) and title of your work in the subject bar.  Simultaneous submissions are okay, just let us know when your work is accepted elsewhere. Multiple submissions are not okay unless solicited. Submit to only one category per issue. We retain the first rights of your work for a period of three months. After this time rights revert back to the author. If you should republish the story/article please acknowledge that it was first published by www.fleasonthedog.com
