Submission Guidelines

And, don’t forget that, like all other small, independent presses and publishers, we have our own submission guidelines for you to follow…

We’ve recently updated these to make the process clear for all writers submitting to us, and to ensure that we manage our time appropriately — reviewing your work as efficiently as we can while paying it the close attention that it deserves.

You can check out our updated guidelines below!
