WELCOME!

April 1st, 2019

Welcome to Fleas on the Dog. In this, our big second issue, we are introducing two special features. The first is an op-ed called WHY WE LIKE IT, which explains the reason we published the story/article. The second is an AUTHOR'S NOTE. Too often in literary publishing all we get is a bio, when we'd really like to hear the writer talk about his or her work.  We hope this adds to your experience as a reader.  Also, we are proud to announce that 5 authors are making their publishing debut. Congratulations to Tom Finnegan, McKenzie Hurder, Joseph Payne, Tracey Sterns and Wade Springer!


And among our distinguished roster of veteran writers we are honored to feature a Norton Best Fiction Anthology author (Paul Beckman), a Best Small Fiction nominee (Mir-Yashar Seyedbagheri), a Thurber Award nominee (Todd Sentell), a Booranga Writer's Center (Australia) Fiction Prize winner (Mitchell Grabois), the 'Squid Weekly' publisher (Ben Rietema), a 2018 PEN-Faulkner Award runner up (Chris Kassel), and  a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee (Robert D. Kirvel). 


It is a big line up and we hope you enjoy it. Until we meet again in Issue 3, stay cool and remember, READ is the best four-letter word in the World.



Tom, Charles, Richard, Robert and Steve

About Us

Fleas on the Dog

We are a collective of writers/editors who publish a non profit online magazine for those who are on the avant garde and outside the box. 


WHAT WE LIKE

Fiction: We take pretty much everything. Mainstream, traditional, literary, barbaric yawps, flash, metafiction, experimental, sci/fi, speculative, fantasy, mystery, micro, nano, grunge, bad (but it better be good!), modernist, post-modernist, spamlit, kitschlit, retro, metro, outsider, you name it.  Our only criterion is quality. No graphics please. 

Nonfiction: Kick ass op-eds, essays and articles on topical topics that are sure to p*** somebody off, memoirs, manifestos, reviews, games, nonsense and other cogent junk. Politically incorrect is welcome as long as it doesn’t devolve into invective.


WHO YOU ARE

Anybody whose engines burn when they write. You can have won literary awards or never published at all. Degrees don’t impress us—it’s your work that matters. 


SUBMISSIONS

 

ONLINE PUBLISHING GUIDELINES

We are currently accepting submissions for our upcoming Issue Three from April 16 to June 16. Publishes July 1. 

 There is no submission fee. There is no remuneration for work we publish, either, but what the heck, you're going to be famous! We'll get back to you within 30 days, hopefully sooner.

Fiction/Nonfiction: Up to 5000 words. Length is less important than quality. For works longer than 5000 words query the editors about possible serialization.

Submissions should be on a Microsoft Word doc or docx file. Use a sensible font. Double space format. Stuff like grammar and sentence structure  is important unless your work deliberately exploits bad grammar and lack of structure. (We can tell the difference.) Include a brief bio with your submission and publishing credits, if any. Send your submission as an e-mail attachment to editors@fleasonthedog.com (or type in the link in the email address).

 Include the genre (fiction or non fiction) and title of your work in the subject bar. Once we notify you that your submission has been accepted for publication in the upcoming issue, please get back to us with confirmation. If we do not hear from you within 3 days, we regret we will rescind our offer to publish. Simultaneous submissions are okay, just let us know when your work is accepted elsewhere. Multiple submissions are not okay. Submit to only one category (fiction or nonfiction) per issue. If you have been published by us please do not resubmit for six months. We retain the first rights of your work for a period of three months. After this time rights revert back to the author. If you should republish the story/article please acknowledge that it was first published by www.fleasonthedog.com
