Editorial Focus

Tips From the Editor

Please ensure that your story is free of typos and grammatical errors. Submissions should be in proper manuscript format (Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spaced), with no page numbering or identifying information (name, address, phone number, etc.) anywhere on the manuscript itself—that’s what the cover letter is for. Cover letters should be concise, professional, and in third-person. We do not publish novels, fan-fiction, experimental pieces, articles or research papers. We also do not publish erotica, though there can be erotic and/or graphic elements in your fiction, as long as they are tasteful and for the purpose of telling a great story.
