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.

  • 150 word minimum limit for fiction and non-fiction, stories and essays / maximum 1000 words
