• All submissions must be original previously unpublished.

  • Submissions should be approximately 400 to 600 words (with the exception of poetry).

  • All photos must be original or include photo credit information.

  • Please make sure all work is polished and perfected. While we maintain the right to apply minor edits to submissions (primarily cosmetic, including but not limited to correcting typos, spelling and grammar errors, minor rewording of awkward phrases, etc.), submissions that need very much more than a proofread will not be considered.

  • Include all relevant information with submissions, including title, your name, word count, as well as a short bio to be included at the bottom of your work (optional!) should it chosen to be featured. Please keep bios under 75 words. You may also include one relevant link to your active site or blog, and a Twitter and/or Facebook link.

  • Please allow up 6-8 weeks for a reply. If you don't hear from us by then, feel free to resubmit.

  • If your piece is published elsewhere before you hear back, please withdraw your entry and/or notify us.

  • If your piece is chosen for publication in the Lit Fix newsletter, you will be compensated $25 one week prior to publication, payable via PayPal.

  • Submitting a piece for consideration DOES NOT guarantee it will be selected for publication.
