We are open to submissions of novellas and novel length work for stand-alone publication in digital and print formats, and
short stories for anthologies.

To view the manuscripts we are currently considering, please visit our submissions manager page.

To Upload and Submit Your Manuscript:

We do not accept emailed or snail mailed queries or manuscripts. On the first page of your uploaded manuscript, add your
cover letter including a pitch statement about your piece, a brief synopsis (including the ending), the word count, the genre
and some information about yourself. Please list any prior publication credits, but don't be intimidated if you have none. We
welcome unpublished authors. Although we can't guarantee a reading, you do not need to query - instead, attach the entire
manuscript with the initial descriptive cover letter, synopsis and pitch.

Any submissions that do not follow our submission guidelines will be declined automatically. We will return submissions that
lack a pitch and synopsis.
