Please limit yourself to 15 pages double-spaced with a 12-point font. Standard or experimental styles will be considered, although we look for outstanding characterization and unique themes.


Please limit yourself to 15 pages double-spaced with a 12-point font. We accept creative non-fiction and general interest non-fiction only.


We are interested in any and all styles of art. Black and white and color are accepted. Physical or digital copies are acceptable.
