There are no specific word limits for nonfiction submissions, though like everyone else, we are constrained by page counts, and the longer a piece of work, the more difficult it is to find room for it. However, we've never not been able to publish something we love.

Please note that we do not publish academic essays; we're interested solely in creative nonfiction.

We read submissions year-round, though we read a bit more slowly during summer and winter months. We only ask that you send one submission at a time (no multiple submissions), and that you withdraw your submission if it has been accepted elsewhere. Thank you.
