    1. Hi Kelly, if you are submitting different pieces of work from a range of categories, you should submit each item separately. If it is a short story it should fall under ‘fiction’, if it’s based on fact then ‘creative non-fiction’. If this doesn’t help, you can express your concern in the email. Then write which category you feel your story falls best into in the subject line.
