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* High-quality, original, unpublished stories (actually, previously published is okay, too).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