How It Works


  • Stories must be limited to one page, or 500 words, whichever is longer.
  • Use standard manuscript format: Times New Roman 12 point, double spaced.


  • All writing must be original. We acquire one time electronic publication rights which revert back to writers upon publication.
  • A response as to whether the submission has been accepted for the Anthology can be expected as soon as the 50 selections are completed.
  • Some feedback on every submission will be provided. This might be limited to just a few comments, which we’d hope would be insightful.
  • New writers are welcomed. All submissions are judged solely by the writing itself.

Evaluation Of Entries

  • Entries will be evaluated by a Committee of published writers, professors and scholars. Suzy Woltmann serves as the Representative of the Committee.
  • Suzy Woltmann is a writer and instructor of literature and writing at University of California, San Diego.
  • Entrants are judged anonymously.
