Aesthetics: Humor. Joy. Exuberance. Deep-feeling massages that set off muscle memories, but in words and pictures and word-pictures. This includes seriousness, sadness, anger, and bereavement, among other emotions familiar to life. But the way you choose to evoke these emotions may be classified humorous, joyful, and/or exuberant. We want to know that you feel and feel deeply, which is different than a collection of words that were cleverly arranged to impersonate feeling. A sad event written humorously, or vice-versa, shows us that you, the artist, are making an effort to present a common experience differently, rather than drawing the same old conclusions about the same old emotions and experiences. We find ourselves increasingly bored by the cynicism, irony, despondence, and detachment characteristic of contemporary art. Somehow it seems that to build a better future–one in which there will be no need for bitter disillusionment because Earth will be a giant spinning toy store in which its children are healthy, encouraged, and free to imagine–we will have to triumph over cynicism and detachment with sincerity.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
