From the Folded Word guidelines:

We are seeking non-formulaic narratives that have a strong sense of place and/or time, especially the exploration of unfamiliar place/time. We are looking for manuscripts that are an escape from the everyday, be it a cleansing laugh, a cathartic cry, a virtual holiday, or even a respite from predictable plots. We enjoy quirky characters, voices that take a chance, humor, and word-play. Please, surprise us.
