There are presently no open calls for submissions.

We feature stories under 1000 words.

Submissions are open during the final week (7 days) of each academic month, with the exception of December. (So: the final weeks of August, September, October, November, January, February, and March.)

Writers may send one or two stories in a single document. (If you have micros -- each story <  250 words -- you can send up to five.)

If you need to withdraw a story from a group, open the submission on Submittable and send us a message via the messages tab.

We generally can't respond to queries about submission status. Please follow Submittable for information relating to submission status.

We ask that you wait for a response to each submission before submitting again.

As an online journal with an accessible archive, Wigleaf is 'ever-live,' meaning that all of our authors represent us, and vice versa, in a perpetual way. By policy, we de-platform, without public comment, authors who engage in or promote hate speech and/or bigotry.

All rights revert to author upon publication. Simultaneous submissions are fine.
