When we've hit our monthly free submission limit you can send us work through this paid option and funds will be split between our editors, who otherwise work on a volunteer basis. All submissions are treated equally.


General Guidelines

Authors should limit submissions to no more than 15 double-spaced pages in total. If you are sending multiple pieces, please begin each one on a new page. Shorter pieces are encouraged. If you are submitting flash, it is helpful to us if you tag it as such in the title.


We do not accept e-mail submissions; all work must be submitted through Submittable. Submissions that are emailed to any of our editors will not be read. Submit your best and submit often. We’re excited about your work!

 
Please send all work in one file. When submitting multiple pieces, please start each one on a new page.


We work hard to give our full attention to your work and regrettably cannot read submissions that do not follow the guidelines.


Our team is filled with creatives who understand the agony of the wait. We will respond to your work within two months of submissions closing, if not sooner.


We will never make major edits to any pieces without explicit permission from the author, but we do reserve the right to edit for things such as grammar, punctuation, spelling, and typos.


Please include a brief 3rd person bio with your submission.


Simultaneous Submissions
Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please notify us ASAP if your work is accepted elsewhere. Those wishing to remove individual pieces but not entire submissions should let us know through a message on Submittable.

Previously Published Work
We do not accept previously published works, including those published on the Internet. Upon publication, all rights revert to the author or artist.
