Please make sure your email subject line and the title of your attachment includes your full name, the word submission, and the genre of your work: i.e. Robert Smith-Poetry Submission.

We do accept simultaneous submissions, but if your piece is accepted elsewhere, please notify us immediately.

If we publish your work we retain first publication rights. After publication, rights revert back to you.

Currently, we publish issues on a quarterly basis at the beginning of the month starting in November of 2017.

We also accept artwork submissions as possible cover photos. Send us something eye-popping!
