Please submit only one essay at any given time. You may submit essays of up to 7500 words, but know that space is limited in the journal and we most often accept work between 2000 and 6000 words.
We only consider previously unpublished work. Please do not submit previously published material, including work published in anthologies, chapbooks, or online. Do not submit book manuscripts, academic essays, or reviews.
Please include a cover letter via the Submittable page. On this letter include word count, your contact information, and a short biographical note.
We only accept submissions online via Submittable. We do not accept submissions via email. All responses will be provided via email.
We accept simultaneous submissions so if work you have submitted to us is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw the piece immediately.
We have recently joined the paying market and are happy to be able to provide our contributors some remuneration for their work.
We read all year round and due to the high volume of submissions, we cannot respond personally to every submission.
All files must be saved in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), Rich Text Format (.rtf), or Plain Text (.txt) formats.
Please prepare your submission in letter size format, double-spaced, using a standard typeface (e.g., Times, Garamond, Helvetica, Arial) and font size (12 point is best). Please use minimal document and font styling in your submission.
