Curbside Splendor Publishing

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submissions are now closed for the Wild Onion Novella Contest: Submit your novella, between 20,000 and 40,000 words in November 2018.


  • Include work as a .doc or .docx
  • All documents should be double-spaced, in a san-serif font.
  • Feel free to let us know how you heard of Curbside Splendor.  


We're fond of gritty, urban stories, and we like realism that is slightly off-balance. As always, the best way to know if your work might be what we're looking for is to read one of our books, or a previous issue of our E-Zine

As a whole, the manuscript must not be previously published.

Simultaneous submissions are totally fine, but please inform us immediately if you need to withdraw your work. 

All other guidelines are below.
