  • Seeking Imperfect Fiction
  • Deadline info Submissions accepted year-round.
  • Genre Fiction
  • Type Literary Site

Many journals ask you to submit your best work. The new website Imperfect Fiction seeks work you don't quite understand—work you've struggled with but seems to have merit, work that seems to be a mistake but a mistake you're inexplicably drawn toward, the one story that no journal has been willing to publish. Imperfect Fiction prefers nontraditional forms and does not require a polished surface. We are particularly interested in Chicago-area writers. Work will be published as it is accepted; the publishing process is more like a blog than a journal. To submit, visit: www.imperfectfiction.com/submit.
