We are asking for First Rights on all submissions, meaning that the works you submit may not currently be published elsewhere.
Royalty payments will occur quarterly during the calendar year (so long as the payment is at least $5.00 USD, otherwise payment will be held until the next quarter). Payments will be made by cheque for those in the continental US, and by PayPal to everyone else.

Please format the subject of your email to say: "Submission – [Type of submission] – [Name of story]". Please make sure the body of the email includes: your name (legal name and preferred pen name (if different from your legal name)), a more detailed description of what you’re submitting, the number of words, a brief synopsis, and any publication credits you may have. If you are simply sending a query, use the same formatting as above, but simply change "submission" to "query" in the subject line.
All submissions should be formatted as followed:
• .doc or .rtf format
• Arial, Calibri, or Garamond font (12pt)
Not following these guidelines will heavily hurt your chances of being accepted, so we advise that they are followed as close as feasibly possible.
