Faded Out is for those voices ignored or passed over or ghosted. It may sound cliche but what we want more than anything are to hear from new, fringe voices. Like most mags, we receive a lot of submissions from a narrow demographic, which can lead to a narrow experience. NO DOUBT, NO REGRETS, PUT YOUR HEART INTO IT AND SEND THAT WORK!
ONLINE We’re always open and always do our best to keep response times within two weeks. New work two times a week. Short fiction and prose suits our format best. Please try to keep it under 2000 words, unless it's so good we read it and say, "Wow, that was over 2000 words?" We are on a poetry hiatus, not because we have anything against poets, but 1. we get way more poetry than anything else, 2. our site doesn't want to respect your poem's formatting and 3. we're not smarter than our website. We accept simultaneous submissions. Please do not submit previously published work. PRINT Submissions for Faded Out’s first print issue run from January 1st, 2018 - April 1st, 2018. Same, pretty much, as online. Fiction and prose preferred, under 4000 words is best. We will accept poetry, but prefer those that bleed. Please write PRINT in the email subject to be considered for the correct venue. firstname.lastname@example.org XOXOXO Faded Out
