Urbanite welcomes unsolicited submissions of literary fiction. We appreciate style and substance: a distinctive voice and a polished craft serving a story that must be told. A connection to Baltimore or the urban experience is preferred, but not essential.

We will consider published and unpublished “sudden fiction” of 500 words or less, short shorts of 1,000 words or less, and short stories and stand-alone novel excerpts up to 3,000 words.

Simultaneous submissions are permitted provided you inform us immediately of an acceptance elsewhere.
