We are looking for submissions from both veteran and new writers. We want to see the best work you have in any genre. We want micro fiction and poetry and six word stories. All entries must be within 140 characters to meet Twitter space limits.
Please submit up to four pieces at a time, no more. Simultaneous submissions are okay as are pieces that have been published on your own Twitter account. We do not accept previously published work.
Submit by email to cuentomag at hotmail dot com. We will respond within seven days. Unfortunately, we cannot pay. We will publish your piece on Twitter in one tweet and your bio in another tweet. We also publish accepted pieces on Facebook . Send a bio (133 char. max) and your twitter handle. (The bio isn’t included on Facebook, only the piece and author’s name.)
Please wait at least one week between submissions.
Generally, if we do not accept your work, we will respond with a general email. Busy schedules don’t allow for personalized responses to all submissions. Sorry.
