Format for submissions:  12 pt Times New Roman or Arial font, word or rich text document

Please note — as membership grows these guidelines may change

The editorial board reserves the right to reject and limit submissions for length and volume of work, work that requires editing or, in the case of non-fiction pieces, may present ideas that could be considered controversial. In cases such as this, the work will be sent back to the author with a request for correction or“reduction” for size and edit issues. In the rare case of “rejection” authors may be asked to submit a different written piece.

Please email your submission with bio before midnight, March 21st
