It’s that time again.

Fuse Literary will be closed to unsolicited submissions from December 1st through January 15th. That means, starting this Thursday, unless one of our agents has personally asked you to submit your work, it’ll have to wait until mid-January. In the meantime, we’ll be reading through those we have in an attempt to find some hidden gems and get to the mythical point known as “inbox zero” in between stuffing our faces and fulfilling various family obligations.

We have families, too. Here’s mine:

And there are lots of obligations.

From all of us at Fuse Literary, we thank you for your patience as we read, and we’re looking forward to your submissions in 2017!
