Green House wants poetry, short stories, creative essays, and flash fiction for bi-monthly digital issues.

                            We want, in no particular order:

                 * Stories that pollinate our minds

         * Language that grows from the page

* The strange and terrible, like everything that happened in Little Shop of Horrors.

*  Annihilation, the book, but like the fiction and poetry versions of it.

      * To be destroyed by art

* To be rebuilt by art.

* Literary fiction & poetry.

* Genre fiction & poetry, including absurd stuff, weird stuff, surreal stuff, and edible stuff.

* Poetry where plants eat people.

* Stories where people become plants.

      * Stories without plants.

            * The color green, in all its shades.

                  * Houses, and the things and people in them.

          * Climate fiction including change, destruction, hope, power, sadness, and magic.

* Fiction without climates.

* Plots that twist more than Jack and the Giant Beanstalk. 

* Fairytales, romances, smooching, and the violence and euphoria of the human spirit. 

* Everything else we didn't say above or otherwise haven't said.

Other Things We Really Want

* Fiction and poetry in font sizes easy to read, spaces easy to read, and fonts easy to read (or fun to read in, like Chiller. Please, everyone: do NOT all send us Chiller. If we receive too many things in Chiller, we'll ban Chiller).

* High-quality, original, unpublished stories (actually, previously published is okay, too).

* Word counts between 1 word and 7,000 words (if you send us an incredible one word story, we'll be very impressed and praise you forever).

* 5 poems in one document.

* 1 story per submission.

* Simultaneous submissions.

* To read fiction and poetry by the same author (it's hard to write both and we admire that).

* Basically any words arranged on the page in a way that makes a good story or poem. How do we define good? If we cry, laugh, throw up, hyperventilate, want to punch a cinderblock, start a fire, or step outside and press our foreheads against a tree for five hours, it's probably good.

Things We Really Don't Want

Green House Assets (1).png

Highlighted in bright red for extra emphasis.

* Racism

* Sexism

* Homophobia (can't we just love everyone?)

* Excessive violence (unless there's a literary point.)

* Sexual assault (unless it's powerful people foraging through the aftermaths of terrible experiences into brighter futures, and the bad guy is preferably eaten by a plant).

* Any other horrible ism. 

* Plots that end in it being "just a dream."

* Afterlife plots where the afterlife is an office.

* Characters that suffer every pain imaginable (we respect A Little Life but man was that a tough read). 

* Excessive grammatical errors (a few are okay; we get it).

How we Publish

Bi-monthly digital issues, and online posts.

 

For now, we pay $15 per acceptance, PayPal only. We're planning to start small and build from there. 

Yeah, it's not much, and we're sorry about that. But we're hoping to raise it soon.

Check back soon for more info, and new content.
