Response Time: We can't promise you that your submission will be posted, but we can assure you that your submission will be read and responded to quickly! (Can't make any ironclad guarantees, but at this point, you will typically hear back from us within a few days.)
Tips for Writers: The best advice I can give is to go to our website first and read the articles currently posted to determine whether your piece will fit in with the tone and genre of ours. We try our best to keep an open mind about all types of submissions, but you would most likely find more success with a funny, irreverent short story than you would a long, academic treatise. Also, attention to punctuation and grammar is highly appreciated.
