  • Accepted Formats For Your Submission:

    1. Microsoft Word

    2. Text Documents

  • Maximum Length - 800 - 1000 words.

  • Spell Check and Grammar Check your submission.

  • Ask someone to read your submission before you send it in, for proper use of English.

  • Include type of "Submission" in the email subject line.

  • Always include the "Author"

    If you are the Author, please include the year you wrote your piece, your full name, email address and one paragraph about yourself,(including a blog or web site address) if you would like a little PR. Also mention if you would like your email address published for possible comments from our visitors.

    If the Author is Unknown - do some research first. See if you can find out additional information. At least send the website address where you found it. Just because it's "Unknown" on one site doesn't mean it's really "Unknown".

    If what you are planning on sending in is copywritten by someone else and you don't have their permission to use it, please don't send it. Try to contact the author - maybe they would like to share and don't know about our website.

  • After your story/poem/essay/article submission is submitted, I will read it as soon as I can, then acknowledge whether or not it will be published. If it is selected, you will be notified by email when it goes live. Waiting time for publication can be 3-4 months, maybe sooner.
