Submission Guidelines

We are looking for submissions that are carefully crafted with the reader in mind.
Excellent grammar and attention to details are important. The ideal length is 500-800 words, and we pay $25 for submissions that we publish in the magazine (see terms below). Additionally, pieces that do not fit into the magazine but are still relevant may be published on our blog — however, these are not paid.

NOTE: We are NOT seeking first-person “survivor story” submissions.
