How to submit

  • Processs

    Email

  • Cover letter

    In your submission email, please tell me something about yourself, and provide links to your social media channels (if applicable).

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Please send your work as PDFs or Word documents.

  • Author's rights

    You retain all rights to your work. I only request that you do not republish/reuse the work again within three months of the issue being published. I also kindly request that you share the good news (your acceptance and the issue itself once it arrives) far and wide because word of mouth is essential to keeping a small press like Stanchion going strong. That said, I politely ask that you please please please do not share your entire piece in full online or on social media. Stanchion exists in print on purpose. It kinda feels like a secret to have and hold a tangible, physical thing in hand. Thank you for understanding. So, please do share your acceptance, share selfies with your issue, and post photos of your work taken at a clever angle, with the link for others to order, and help spread the word without giving away the whole thing.
