Submission guidelines

Submissions are due by March 15th, by midnight CST

They may be up to five thousand words, which may be either a work of short fiction or an excerpt from a longer work. If you are submitting a novel, it is acceptable to send a novel synopsis, outline, or other supporting material, though it is not required reading.

Submissions should be in the standard manuscript format, saved in rich text format.

The file naming convention is the first letter of your given name, your last name, underscore the story name.
