We are now open to submissions for our literary review. Please visit our info page to read the CHILLFILTR mission statement. Send us your best work here. Multiple submissions are fine. There is no submission fee.

All featured works will receive an honorarium of $20 per 1000 words and will be published here as well as on our Apple News Channel. Readers can vote for their favorites by clicking the applause button at the bottom of the piece. Year-end "Best Of" winners will receive an additional $100 cash prize.


We just opened submissions in May of 2020. We will publish new pieces every weekend. For now, enjoy a few works from CHILLFILTR founder Krister Axel.
