How to submit

  • Processs

    Submittable

  • Cover letter

    Feel free to say hi if you know us, and definitely mention if we've published you before (editors change, so we don't always remember that we did). That whole thing of mentioning a piece you especially like makes no difference to whether we publish your work, but it's always nice to know a piece was appreciated. Generally, editors don't read bios until after reading the submitted work.

  • Eligibility

    single Microsoft Word (*.doc, *.docx) document.
