The editors actively solicit writing, regardless of genre, that expresses the values of Chautauqua Institution: meaningful inquiry into questions of personal, social, political, spiritual, and aesthetic importance. The qualities we seek include a mastery of craft, attention to vivid and accurate language, a true lyric “ear,” an original and compelling vision, and strong narrative instinct. Above all, we value work that is intensely personal, yet somehow implicitly comments on larger public concerns — work that answers every reader’s most urgent question: Why are you telling me this?

PLEASE BE SURE TO MARK AS FLASH FICTION, MICRO ESSAY OR PROSE POEM.  THANKS!

You may include up to three flash pieces in a single file.  Each should be no longer than 750 words.

THE THEME FOR THE 2018 ISSUE IS WILD AND TAME.
