We are now accepting submissions for our Fall 2014 issue. The theme is The Eternal Question, whatever that might mean to you, or whatever it might not mean to you, and how it does or does not manifest in your life or someone else’s life, or in the absence of life, in the present, past, or future.

We seek fiction, non-fiction, short fiction, flash fiction, microfiction, nanofiction, micronanofiction, molecular fiction, and chocolate chip cookies (no nuts).

We look for writing that moves you, and writing that moves.

We prefer fresh, eternal, concise, verbose, socially aware, morally bankrupt, experimental, time-tested stories from new, emerging, and established writers.

We believe that good writing does not know whether you have a degree or not. Good writing can’t tell an MFA from an MRS. Good writing also knows nothing of ephemeral social constructs such as “grammar” or “spelling.”

Send us your most polished work. The absolute best you have ever written. The type of writing that you have spent years working on and revising. The work that keeps you up at night. Your blood, sweat, and tears. Your baby. Your very soul laid bare in black and white 12-point double-spaced Times New Roman font. We might display it on a blog somewhere in the depths of the Internet, but more likely we will just reject it as not fitting in with our theme.

No genre.

The Higgs Weldon is a humor website with funny stories, articles, cartoons, and one liners. It was started by the Los Angeles stand-up comedy community, but takes submissions from everybody. Please read and enjoy our jokes!
