3. We accept submissions only from authors.

 

4. Please include a comprehensive synopsis of your work (yes, revealing the ending) in the "Message" box.

 

5. Please submit the first 50 pages of your novel or novella by uploading it below. If submitting a collection of short stories, please submit one whole story. If submitting an unwritten nonfiction work, please submit a comprehensive proposal of the book you have in mind, detailing why it's a story that should be told.
