    Please do not send requests for book reviews unless you are a previous contributor, some of the work therein was originally published here, and the book is scheduled for release within three months (or has just been released) This literary journal is primarily an online publication. Print issues are generated periodically, although we cannot guarantee contributions will eventually make it to print. Though email submissions are greatly preferred, you may alternatively submit prose in hard-copy (no poetry) We nominate stories annually for various anthologies and awards, including the Pushcart Prize, the Best American series, and many others. To get more of an idea of what we are looking for, please read the journal. Prose writers can consult our list of Recommended Reading
