Three Important Items of Note:
We only respond to work that we accept for publication. We are a small staff that does not believe in form letters. If you do not hear from us within 12 weeks your work has not been accepted for publication. We may, however, send you a brief note asking you to submit again if your work is of particular interest to us.
For the time being, we pay in exposure only.
We do accept simultaneous submissions.
Thank you for your interest in our journal. We look forward to reading, viewing, and listening to your work.
