Word count: There is no official minimum or maximum length for stories, essays or poems, but please keep in mind that space limitations make very long pieces harder to accept. Please consult previous years’ collections to get a sense of the usual upper and lower limits.
Formatting: There are no particular requirements when it comes to formatting. If in doubt, double-spaced, single-sided, stapled and Times New Roman are safe bets. There is no official entry form. Please include your name and contact details, preferably an email address as well as a postal address, with your submission. Please also include the name and contact details, preferably an email address as well as a postal address, of your literary agent if applicable.
Owing to the number of submissions we receive, submissions cannot be returned and the editors are unable to comment on individual submissions.
The editors’ selections will be announced on this website in October 2012.
Questions regarding submissions can be directed to email@example.com (Please note, submissions are NOT accepted via email, unless you are living overseas or travelling for an extended period.)
