  • Formatting

    Because we do not review .docx files, if you have images to go with your copy, MAKE SURE you send the images separately to us. There have been difficulties in sending images embedded into .docx files in email transmission, so make sure you send the jpeg images to as a separate files. If we accept the for publication, they appear in print books as well as web pages, so we need images at 300dpi at a maximum width of 4.5 inches (if you only have the image at 72dpi, that means it needs to be a maximum width of 18.75 inches at 72 dpi, and we can convert the file to 300 dpi for print publication). Images that are sent to us at 2 to 4.5 inches wide at 72dpi are WAY to small for print purposes. SENDING WRITING IN ITALICS: Some people remember that sending submissions where all italicized material is instead underlined, and some do not know this. If your submission has italics as underlines, we will assume (if there are no italics in your submission and there are underlines) that underlined copy should be italicized instead. If this is not what you want (i.e., you do not have or want any italicized copy and you want copy underlined), let us know this when submitting your work. Do NOT all-cap titles. No NOT enter two returns after every paragraph in prose. (This goes for no double returns after every line in poems too.) Do not center poetry. (And because we import Word files into our layout program before looking at them, we don’t get embedded images and we do not use colors in text, so don’t do it). Do not give us writing with assorted random indentations (they are too difficult to replicate on the web, so please refrain from using them).

  • Additional info

    Our biases are works that relate to issues such as politics, sexism, society, and the like, but are definitely not limited to such. We publish good work that makes you think, that makes you feel like you’ve lived through a scene instead of merely reading it. If we had to use two words to describe what we want, they would have to be intelligent and powerful. Keep that in mind. After you have sent a submission, please do not send another submission until we have processed and responded to your first submission.
