If you have questions, such as, “How do I paste or attach my story into the submission form?” please ask a friend or relative, not our webmaster. 3. Please submit only stories or essays that have not been previously published. The only exception to this is if your work has only been published with limited circulation on your own blog. 4. Please do not send us any book manuscripts, as these will be automatically discarded.
