Dash is an annual journal dedicated to publishing the best poetry,
fiction, and criticism that is short, open-ended, and emphatic. In a
world that is focused on the quick and condensed, quality is often
neglected. Our goal at Dash is to seek and nurture authors who can create
a meaningful discourse in a small space. It is our mission to publish
new poetry, fiction and criticism from both established and emerging
writers in the English language.
â€¢ Fiction and Micro-Lit-Crit submissions should not exceed 1,500
words, double-spaced. Micro-Lit-Crit is a thought-provoking work of
Literary Criticism done in 1,500 words or fewer.
