A change to our guidelines
We’ve raised our maximum length for stories from from 2000 to 3000 words. Not because we don’t love the stories we’re already getting, but in hopes this will give the site even more breadth, and will create opportunities for those slightly longer stories that fall through the cracks between print and web journals.
Going higher than 3000 words is a definite possibility for the future, but that might be too taxing for our currently modest stable of readers… or, to be more accurate, for our current modestly unstable reader. This seems a workable compromise between keeping up with our queue, and getting a wider sampling of stories, so we’ll give it a try and see how it works.
