Tips From the Editor: 

Please send your submission to the "Submit Form" on my site's 'Submit-Your-Writing" page. I no longer accept submissions with attachments or submissions via email due to security reasons.

Also, please do a self-edit before submitting; publisher only does 'minor' editing such as typos, proper grammer and spelling.

Please do provide an Author Bio and / or Resource Box with your writing.

Please don't format your work in the traditional sense; I will format it myself when published in my magazine.

Please don't send submissions with hatred, bigotry, profanity, or sexually explicit language in your work. It will automatically be rejected.
