How to submit

    Submittable

  • Cover letter

    This magazine does not list any details on their website for this section.

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    We prefer not to receive submissions as PDFs unless it's necessary for formatting; it makes it more difficult to copy your piece over into its final proof and onto our website. Standard manuscript formatting is not necessary!

  • Author's rights

    We ask for the right to digitally publish your work online, and keep it in our online archive. You retain the copyright to your work. We ask that you wait until after the work has been published to repost or republish it elsewhere, and that you mention Corvid Queen as its original home.

    Make you feel at home: cozy, a sense of community, all that stuff Pays!
