Lightning Key Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


We are open to all genres and seek great work that grounds itself primarily in narrative: traditional, experimental, lyrical, pataphysical—just so the writing is powerful and no longer than 700 words.

Submissions don’t have to be about lightning or keys, though we won’t rule out work that deals with either. In short, if you have written imagistic, traditional or experimental, genre-bending, serious or humorous narrative prose or poetry, we’d love to read it.  To read more about our aesthetic, check out the interview we did for Jim Harrington’s blog “Six Questions for” here: http://sixquestionsfor.blogspot.com/2016/05/six-questions-for-patrick-crerand-and.html

You may submit up to three (3) pieces at a time. Simultaneous submissions are expected and accepted, but please withdraw the piece when the work has been accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work.
