Do You Have Any Cover Letter Advice?
Our publication is unique because all of our over-50 authors have led full lives before we meet them. We’re more interested in you as a person and less as a list of publications, and our editors enjoy your letters as much as your writing.
How Are Submissions Processed In Your Magazine/press?
Your work will be read by someone 50 or older (usually older). We don’t have “slush piles” or a gateway of interns, just a few trusted readers. All final decisions must be unanimous between the co-editors.
What Do You Look For In A Submission?
Writing unlike what we’ve published recently with a special interest in immigrant stories and giving voice to marginalized people.
