(If you get a security error message while using Google Chrome, we suggest that you use a different browser. Using Safari does not bring this warning/blockage. We’ve contacted Submittable, though we do not expect this issue to be resolved until Monday the 23rd. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your patience and diligence!) Please do not submit previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are ok, but please let us know promptly if your work has been accepted elsewhere.  We generally do not notify submitters until after the submission period has closed and all pieces have been reviewed. Submit one MS WORD document in .doc or .docx with each piece beginning on a new page. Do not include your name or any other identifying information. Instead, submit a separate cover page with your contact information, the name(s) of the piece(s), and a biography of 60 words or less. Please use a popular font such as Calibri, Arial, or Times New Roman, 12 point. We prefer single-spaced formats, except when double spacing is a deliberate part of the layout. Hard copy will not be accepted and will be destroyed. We adhere strictly to our deadline (US Central time zone). Any submissions received after 11:59 pm of the closing date for the Call will be automatically rolled into the next submission period for consideration. Thanks for thinking of! We use Submittable. During an open call, please submit at:
