Lyrical Press Looking for Short Fiction
*forwarded from Romance Divas*
If you have that Quick Read (15,000 - 20,000) or Short (20,001 - 35,000) you'd like to submit, go on ahead and send it to Emma, our Editor-In-Chief. She's dying for more work, because, seriously, it's not bad enough we work her nearly to death as it is. So, help us heap some more work on her. She likes it (at least that's what we tell ourselves).
Please send submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
(Remember, we're open to all submissions 15,000 - 100,000+ in all genres!)
