  • Submissions policy
    Our submission guidelines are listed on our submission page. We have a standard contract that buys first American copyrights then all rights revert to the author. We hold the non-exclusive rights to keep work in our website for two years but will remove it at the request of the author. If we decide to print a "Best Of" anthology, we offer two copies of the anthology as payment to each contributor. Our practices are standard with the industry.
