  • Submit only work that has not been previously published, in print or online.

  • Please tell us which category your work is targeting.

  • Pieces up to 3500 words.

  • Please send only one submission per category.

  • We do not publish the same writer more than twice a year.

  • We respond to all submissions by email. On average, our response time is between two weeks and one month.

  • A panel of ELA specialists will select, proofread and format pieces to be published.

  • We encourage an open, diverse and rich space for sharing, but do not pay contributors.
