Submissions will close 30th June 2021.
What are we looking for?
Well … stories, poems and essays that feature someone not wanting to be where they are now, or something that is happening somewhere else but definitely not right here, or a longed for travel destination … or maybe definitely not here, because somewhere else is better … or anything that suggests someone might want to be somewhere else or doing something different.
Your submission must be:

- 150 word minimum limit for fiction and non-fiction, stories and essays / maximum 1000 words
- 80 word minimum limit for poetry / maximum 1000 words. (That’s for each poem: maximum number of poems you can submit is 5.)
