We will read and consider simultaneous submissions, on the condition that the author notify us immediately by email if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere. Submitters must also withdraw the submission through the Submittable site. Let us be happy for you rather than angry at you!

If your work appears on a blog, we ask that upon acceptance you:

1) Add a line that the work is forthcoming at 2) Once we publish your piece, please take it down and redirect viewers to our site as that is where the work will now live. (You will receive notice when we put your work up!)

All artwork: photographs, paintings, etchings, lithographs and line drawings are now accepted in black & white and color for publication on our website, and in black & white only for our print annual.
