A Magazine of Micro Fiction
Switch, def.: An act of adopting one way of life in place of another; a change, especially a radical one; a slender, flexible shoot cut from a tree; a junction of two railroad tracks, with tapering rails that allow a train to pass from one line to another.

We are now closed for submission, but will reopen in the spring. We look forward to reading your work!
