• If you are submitting more than one piece, please upload as individual files. (i.e. one file per piece submitted. Word documents are preferred! We do not accept submissions in the body of an email. Please attach individual files.)

For fiction and non-fiction, they will accept a maximum of 5000 words total in each genre. Please specify word count(s) in your cover letter.

(e.g. Five 1000 word non-fiction pieces, or anything that adds up to 5000 words, OR one 5000 word piece.)

However, keep in mind that if it is on the longer side, it must earn its length—the piece should be as long as it needs to be.

They will accept any combination of the above for consideration.
