Submissions can be short or long (but not dissertation long) and sent electronically to in an attached document form (preferably Word). Be sure to include your school affiliation along with your name, address, phone, and email.

Because of the variety of genres, we will accept an abstract or full piece for review. Abstracts are not required, particularly for smaller pieces.

Submissions are considered and accepted year-round! To guarantee consideration for the Fall/Winter issue, please email your complete submission by November 15th. We notify quickly.

This is a great opportunity to get your work in front of colleagues that most want to hear from you!
