We are based in New York City and welcome submissions from both national and international writers.

- 1 prose/creative nonfiction piece, 2 if both under 500 words. Maximum word count: 2,500.
- Multiple submissions (in the same genre) are not accepted and will not be read. Please wait until you receive a response from us before submitting again.
