Rappahannock Review is looking for original, well written fiction. Submissions may contain one piece up to 8,000 words or three pieces of flash, each containing 1,000 words or fewer. Pieces experimenting with form are encouraged. Although we are interested in a wide range of fiction, we will consider short, self-contained genre fiction (that is, no novel excerpts) that avoids cliché and experiments with the flexibility of its genre.
