Please  submit in the form:
  • your cover note, (fiction editor: John)
  • your story or stories 
  • and your brief bio. 

The bio should in the 3rd person and no more than 50 words. Rather than a comprehensive list of publications, give us a few of the most recent.  

Finally, please do check and re-check your work before sending it in. Make sure it reads and is formatted as you wish it to appear.
