Each magazine will have a broad theme or topic we’ll be asking authors to keep in mind as they pen their short stories. This issues’ theme: “Home Is Where the House Is.” As long as your story has something to do with a home, it’s fair game. Maybe it’s a story about how a specific room in your childhood house shaped the way you are today; a strange noise in the attic that wakes you up every night at 3 a.m. sharp that must be investigated; maybe you’re still looking for a place to call home, or perhaps returning home after a long absence. Whatever it is, be it a true story or completely made up, we want to see it!
There are a few basic requirements for all submissions:
1.) All writers must live in Saratoga County or a neighboring county
2.) Submissions should fall between 800 – 1,200 words
3.) Please include your name and an email address where we can reach you if your story is chosen
4.) This is a family-friendly magazine, so please keep the language appropriate
5.) This must be an original story – no stories that have been published elsewhere
Stories that are set in or around Saratoga Springs are preferred but not required.
So let’s see what you’ve got Saratoga. If you’ve been waiting for your shot to show the world your tall-tale-telling talents, this is the time.
