How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    All submissions should contain a brief 50-100 word bio that notes your favorite pop or soda. If you choose anything but Ale-8 or Dr. Enuf, we probably won't publish you. We kid, maybe. Also, let us know if you say pop, soda, or Coke. This is important. ​
