Novellas are perfect for that in-between space—fiction too long for a short story, too brief for a novel. We're looking for works about that in-between space that only a novella can fill. Maybe your work covers a topic that make the mainstream uncomfortable. Or maybe it's experimental. Or maybe your novella has a surprising take on the mundane aspects of life. The field is open. Send us your best.

The final product here is a physical book, just like the Northwest Review journals: gritty, grainy, thick paper stock, an art object with original illustrations and your own vision for the art and cover baked into the editorial process. Let's make art together. 20,000 to 50,000 words-ish.
