Around The World In 3,000 Words

Submissions Open

March 1, 2022

There’s something inherently exciting about setting sail on worldwide adventures. Throw in lost treasure, a trusty sidekick and an old fashioned and undependable form of transportation, and you have yourself a solid quest. We’re looking for your very best action and adventure stories centering on treasure hunts and exploration. Call us nostalgic but we miss Indiana Jones and can only rewatch Goonies so many times before it gets weird. We can’t wait to read your swashbuckling short stories of up to 3,000 words. Bonus points for Nicholas Cage as your protagonist (we’re kidding…kind of).
