Fiction submissions should be 3500 words or less.  Because we are a literary journal, we do expect that submissions hold literary merit.  This means that, while we as editors may personally enjoy genre fiction (such as sci fi, fantasy, etc.), Calaveras Station is a reflection of academic-centered writing; therefore, we are not looking for pieces that might be categorized as "genre fiction".  Also, your piece should reflect an understanding of contemporary craft conventions and techniques.  Experimental prose is encouraged.  Please see editor bios for more information.
