Are You A Writer? Share Your Best Karen!

Got a great original story that includes a well-written character named Karen? Send it to for consideration for publication.

Authors by any name are welcome. We especially welcome fiction from underrepresented voices and that which adds to the understanding of what it means to be human. Karen does not need to be the protagonist of your piece but should be a reasonably well-developed character.

Length: <8000 words.

We welcome flash fiction, multiple submissions, simultaneous submissions, and work that has been published elsewhere for which you hold the copyright. We are also open to linking to good Karen fiction on another site that holds the copyright.

We prefer not to publish work from authors who use and or have used the word "Karen" as a slur in their other writing. Such work will be removed from consideration or publication if identified.

By submitting, you affirm that your submission is your original work and you hold the copyright. You can expect to hear back within two weeks.
