Very Short Story Length?

I’m curious to know what BCS’s stance on very short stories is. I have a few stories that I’m thinking of submitting, but they’re extremely short (around 1000 words). Would their brief nature decrease their chances of being accepted, or is shortness irrelevant?

Thanks for asking. Length is irrelevant to me–I’m only looking for great stories. However, I do often find that for secondary-world types of fantasy, stories of very short lengths don’t have as much depth or richness of setting that I’m looking for. Please feel free to submit them, but know that I think it’s a challenge to build a full world in such a short length.
