Relief seeks fiction of high literary merit that takes the struggles and joys of our everyday lives seriously.
Stories should not exceed 8,000 words, though in general, we prefer to work with much shorter pieces. You may submit up to THREE stories per reading period; submit each story as separate files within the same submission. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw your piece immediately if it is accepted elsewhere.
Please include your name, e-mail, the title of the work, and the word count at the top of the first page.
