Please submit only
one (1) essay at a time. Additional submissions
will be returned unread. Only previously unpublished work will be considered. Simultaneous
submissions are allowed, but if your piece is accepted elsewhere we ask that
you please withdraw it from our system. Memoir excerpts or excerpts from longer nonfiction works are always
welcome. Translations are welcome, but it is the translator's responsibility to
secure rights to the work before it is submitted. Reading an issue or two of
the magazine before submitting is strongly recommended.
We will make every effort to respond to your submissions within four months,
though at times it may be longer. If it has been more than four months and you
have not yet received a response, we will be happy to reply to a query
regarding the status of your submission.
