General Submission Guidelines

Please check specific Open Calls for any unique requirements. Below are general submission guidelines.

All submissions must be original and previously unpublished in any format (including your personal website, KDP, Kindle Vella, etc) unless reprints are specifically allowed per the open call.


Please format your submission in a readable font, size, and color as a Microsoft Word doc or docx. We prefer the Shunn format.

Be sure to include the name of the open call, your story title, and your name in your manuscript’s file name. For example, “ANTHOLOGY TITLE: Story Title — Word Count — Author Name”. This is also how your email subject line should be formatted.

Please Include

In your email, please include a short bio along with a list of recent publications (if you are currently unpublished, simply mention that).

Also, include the word count and the broad genre of your submission.
