Tips for Writers: Send your best work. If we feel it is a solid work, but not something we want to include in our own publication, we may suggest alternative markets. If you get a refusal for any reason other than inappropriate subject matter, take advantage of the editing group. We will work with writers through re-writes, and re-consider an item afterwards.
