25 Miles From Here

Submissions for 25 Miles From Here Pure Slush Vol. 21 have now opened.

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:

  • original, so previously unpublished online or in print (so that includes authors’ websites and blogs)
  • 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.)
  • must include something about wanting to be somewhere else … or at least not here!

You must be minimum 18 years of age.
