Thank you so much for allowing us to share your story with our readers! We’re passionate about ensuring that great stories reach readers who will love them, and we’re thrilled you’re willing to participate. As explained in the email we sent you, we pay $0.01 for solicited reprints and $0.03 for original fiction. The word count stated in our submission guidelines doesn’t apply to solicited stories.
Before submitting, please ensure your document is free of any extraneous code that may trigger our security software or result in your submission exceeding the word count guidelines. Some word processing programs contain a truly ridiculous amount of hidden CSS. If your submission fails, try pasting it into Notepad, copying it again, and pasting it from there. Unlike other publishing companies, we don’t consider your formatting at the time of submission important, as we’ll check the formatting with you after acceptance.
