If you have posted something to your website or social media, this counts as being published. Within the cover letter please include your full name, contact info, and a fun 3-sentence bio, which will be published in the magazine. (We're not as interested in how many degrees you have, or how widely you've been published. Instead, we want to hear about the real you. We want to know about the little things that spur you along.) Contributors can submit to multiple categories; however, only submit once to each category until you have received our decision about your piece. You will receive an acceptance or rejection letter from our editorial staff within 6 months from the day of submission. We accept simultaneous submissions; however, please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. If accepted, please withdraw the piece from other publications. We reserve first initial publishing rights and then all rights revert back to the author. We do not pay contributors at this time. Please note that submissions that exceed word counts or maximum amount of material will be disqualified from consideration. Submissions are only accepted through Submittable.
