- Prose must not exceed 2,500 words in length.
- Poetry should be submitted in the format in which you wish it to appear on the page; individual poems should not exceed 50 lines.
HOW TO SUBMIT
- Submissions should be set in Times New Roman, 12 point, 1.5 spacing. The file name should be your surname and initial(s) and genre (e.g. Smith J_Poetry).
- The work submitted for consideration should contain no identifying information, e.g. name or address, to allow for a blind reading of work submitted.
- Authors are asked to submit pieces of work separately for each category (i.e. one document containing a poem or poems, another for prose).

- Please attach one file only per category (e.g. all poems submitted should be in one document) up to two (2) categories per person.
