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.

Switch is an online magazine of micro fiction, devoted to stories that leave the beaten path, carry us forward, transform.

We are open for submission and look forward to reading your work; here are the guidelines:

  • Each piece must not exceed 400 words. You may submit up to three pieces. 

  • Work must be unpublished and comprised of a single paragraph (please do not indent).

  • Simultaneous submissions are not accepted.

  • We'd like to receive your selections in a Word document (.doc or .docx) in single-spaced lines, using Times New Roman, 12-point font. 

  • Please embed and italicize any spoken words (do not use quotation marks around dialogue).

  • Be sure to send us a brief biographical note (up to three lines) in your Word document.
