Call for submissions Issue 16.3: Digital Love
Extended Deadline: January 31, 2017
Dating is scary. There’s no way around it, but no matter what happens there’s always a story to tell. That’s what we’re looking for. We want your awkward meetings, your horror stories, even your happy endings. So share with us your adventures in dating because no matter what happened there’s always a story to tell.

Please include a cover letter in the body of your email with a third-person bio (no more than 50 words), the titles of the work you’re submitting and your full contact information.
