About

In a world more divided than ever, Humans of the world or HOW seeks to display literature from people of all different backgrounds. We believe that people have similar innate desires. On the outside it's easy to judge and focus on external differences, but a closer inspection reveals the underlying commonalities we share. Happiness, love, acceptance, and friendship are a few amongst many of our deepest desires that everyone strives for. Come share your story, we would love to hear your experience.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions, and does not offer monetary payment for accepted submissions.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
