Pplease send ONE unpublished story of no more than 15 pages or 5000 words, a piece that doesn't fall under the purview of one of our departments but still deals with social justice issues. Note that we accept simultaneous submissions. Look to hear back from us in 3-6 months at the very latest.

Should your work be accepted elsewhere, congrats and please withdraw in the submissions manager.

And do look at sample poems from HEArt's Current Issue for an idea of what we are looking for. Avoid heavy-handed "preaching to the choir." Our aesthetic is concrete imagery/narrative that has a strong emotional center.

Also, please include a brief bio in the comments section with a note on how you heard about HEArt Online. We thank you for bearing witness, telling truths, submitting your work.
