HARSH is accepting flash fiction, short stories and (prose) poetry. While HARSH specializes in “upsetting, confrontational and aggressive” literature, submissions need not contain extreme gore, deviant sex acts or otherwise aberrant behavior to be considered. There are many ways to upset a reader; HARSH aims to discover all of them.

We ask that submissions not exceed 3000 words. While we are fans of visual poetry and abnormal formatting, we tend to decline pieces that feature these. Please submit only one short story at a time and a maximum of three poems.

Please familiarize yourself with the content of the site before submitting.

All work should be sent to
