Although the length of a short story is restricted to 5 000 words, longer short stories (and novels or novellas) may be accommodated - typically serialized over several issues of the journal. Long contributions, however, are more difficult to fit and so stand a lesser chance of publication. And, although we make some effort to accommodate the author's preferences, the requirements of the journal will take priority, and format may be changed. If you require specific fonts and so on, please indicate this, explain and justify in a covering letter.

A document should not normally contain more than one story.
