RAGAD is now closed to submissions. We will reopen again in early '08. Check back here for details.
RAGAD accepts unsolicited submissions of fiction and nonfiction, 2500 words or less, for consideration in our online and print editions. Currently, print installments through # 6 are full, but you can submit for print installments thereafter. NO POETRY! SERIOUSLY! We'll hurt you (not really, but we won't respond to you). RAGAD does consider reprints, but on a case-to-case basis. Submit something new, something fresh. Send one story at a time as a Word attachment with SUBMISSION in the subject line to editor Nick Ostdick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you include all contact information, at least an email address, in the body of your submission, along with a short bio about yourself. Response time is running about two months right now, sometimes shorter, sometimes longer. We read year-round. While RAGAD is not a paying market, we offer you our eternal friendship as well as the opportunity to read at one of our many Chicago-area readings.
Questions can be addressed to editor Nick Ostdick at email@example.com
