The Rag is currently accepting submissions of short fiction. We publish 1 story every month, which we distribute through our newsletter and through our website as a free Kindle, Epub and/or PDF download. We offer the standard “pro rate” for all pieces accepted for publication ($0.05/word), the average being about $225 per short story. 

We take submissions online here via Submittable. It is free to submit to The Rag on the 1st of every month. After the 1st of each month, we charge a $3 fee to submit online. 100% of the revenue we receive from online submission fees goes back to the writers we publish. We also offer submitters archive access to all 6 previously published issues of The Rag for only $5. See the option below. 

Please note, we are no longer publishing poetry.
