Submissions will be accepted from December 11, 2020 through January 11, 2021 11:59PM PST.
SIMULTANEOUS & MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS
Simultaneous submissions (submitting the same stories to other publishers at the same time) are allowed. Please let us know as soon as possible if submission is accepted or published by another publisher. To withdraw your submission, email us at [email protected] with the subject line “WITHDRAW SUBMISSION: [Title of the story you’re withdrawing]”. If we select your story, please remove the work from consideration elsewhere immediately. We accept a maximum of 2 stories per author per submission period. Additional stories will be left unread.
Note: The email address provided is for withdrawal of submissions only. DO NOT email us your submission. We will only consider submissions through the Google Form link below.
We do not accept reprints (stories that have been previously published). All submissions must be unpublished.
Author will be notified via email once story has been selected. Most submissions will receive a response within 30 days after the submission deadline (January 11, 2021). Due to the sheer number of submissions we are unable to reply to all inquiries. We will review all submissions, so if you don't hear back within 45 days after the submission deadline, then it has not been selected.
We’ve compiled answers to frequently asked questions in our AUTHORS’ FAQs page.
