Thank you.

*Please note: Submissions are currently closed while we catch up on our reading. Thanks for your interest and patience. Submissions will reopen again in the fall.*

All prose submissions should be under 1,000 words. Submissions over 1,000 words will either be rejected or, in certain cases, pared down.

If you are submitting a series of pieces where each segment is under 1,000 words, that could work. Convince us.

If you have multiple very short submissions (100-300 words) you may submit those at the same time, but please submit each as a separate file.

For art, ideal specs are RGB 1998 profile, 300 dpi max page size, tiff files preferred. (If you don't know what any of that means, neither do we. Just send us your stuff and we will try to view it the best way we can–i.e., stereoscope, opera glasses, etc.)

Gigantic publishes mostly fiction, but is open to non-fiction. If you have an idea for restaurant reviews written in haiku, profiles of celebrities in baseball card format or interviews with interesting people about things not related to their field of work feel free to submit or query.
