SUBMIT TO US
Before you submit to the Furious Gazelle, ask yourself the following about your submission: Does it have a good story? Is it compulsively readable? Are you a living human being who has written some words? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we encourage you to submit.
We consider short fiction, micro fiction, poetry, short plays, novel excerpts, and creative non-fiction.
LENGTH: Submissions should be anywhere from 100 to 7,000 words.
We would prefer submissions in .doc, .docx or .pdf files, but we’re flexible as long as your formatting is clear and easy to read. If you have special formatting, please do not paste your story into the body of an e-mail.
Also, please note if you have special formatting as it sometimes does not display correctly in Word. This way we can check with you if something looks incorrect. I.e. if your poem about whales is in the shape of a whale, tell us.
Submit to email@example.com. If you don’t, we’ll find you. And make you.
Just kidding. But we are angry.
Things that Make Us Furious
We are always accepting submissions to our column, Things That Make Us Furious. We invite you to tell us, in satirical essay, listicle, rant, whatever, as long as it is well-informed words with a biting humor that makes you furious too.
We accept essays of any word count sent as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Book Review Requests
The Furious Gazelle is currently open to book review requests. To submit a book for review consideration, please send an email to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org with “BOOK REVIEW REQUEST” in the subject.
