WHAT WE LOOK FOR
An engaging and unique voice.
Writing that can stand alone: meaning, we do not need context outside of the page to understand what is going on.
Some sort of story arch or design and a sense of cohesion.
Clean text: thoroughly edited; more or less ready to read as is.
Stories and poems that are not overwhelmed with adjectives and descriptors.
Your best work!
So much of our decision making process comes down to how the four pieces fit and flow together. If you do not get accepted for one Incus Night, please do not hesitate to submit again for another.
Thank you! We love reading all of the submissions.
