What ties humans to earth, and to each other, in times of uncertainty or disarray? We want to hear your answer, and anything else you want to share with us: the tangled, the complex, the heartwarming––and everything in-between. No, seriously, everything. Everything.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
