Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Submit your work by filling out all fields below.
- We accept fiction, book reviews, poetry, essays, literary commentaries, and fun listicles.
- We do not accept submissions that have been published elsewhere.
- Simultaneous submissions are fine. All we ask is that you notify us when your work is accepted elsewhere.
- Be conscious of the fact that you are writing for an online audience, so keep things short, sharp, and exciting. Suggested word count:

- Book review: 400-700 words

- Always include a brief greeting in your submission email.

- Be advised that we will edit your work and sometimes change the title.
