Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Flypaper is 100% committed to changing the culture in publishing and is especially interested in work from PoC, queer, women, neurodivergent, and other underrepresented writers in the literary world. Flypaper also loves receiving submissions from poets with some relation to Ohio. We refuse to publish any work that is racist, queerphobic, xenophobic, fascist, or hateful in any way. Additionally, we refuse to publish writers whose work may not espouse these views but who personally do.

Submissions Policy
Flypaper accepts unsolicited submissions in these genres only during the months of January and February via our Submittable portal. We hope to get back to you by the end of March or shortly into April. All accepted work is published online and then select pieces are chosen for inclusion in our yearly print anthology, which is scheduled for release each December. For poems, send no more than three, with each new poem beginning on a separate page, in a single word document. For flash fiction (less than 500 words), send no more than two pieces in a single document, with each piece beginning on a separate page. For short stories, essays, or CNF, there is no word count limit but we prefer pieces less than 3000 words. Submit only one piece in any of these genres. All submissions must be previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable so long as you notify us promptly if a piece has been accepted elsewhere and is no longer open to consideration (you can do so by making a note in Submittable). Include a short cover letter with each submission as well as a brief bio. All submissions are free until we reach our Submittable cap for the month, at which point the option closes. Expedited review, and feedback submissions remain an option past this point but require a fee.
