Just to be clear--You own your story. We don't ask for any right other than the right to display the story on our web site. Your name will appear on the story as copyright holder.
There are no international limitations. Stories from any country are fine, although they must be written in English.
Sending Text By E-Mail
Send your story file in the body of an E-mail or as an E-mail
attachment. Please send it as a Word or Open Office text file. Be sure you've copy edited it
Please single space your manuscript. You need not indent paragraphs, although that is OK, but be sure you put a single blank space between them. This will help me format your story for the internet and I'll appreciate it. Many manuscripts arrive with the text all continuous, so we can't tell where paragraphs end or start.
Be sure you've titled the story. It's surprising how many come in with no title.
If you think you might want a pen name, think hard. They make it a pain in the sit-down place for us to remember who you really are. Besides, most pen names are no better than the name you got when you were born. However, if you must, you must.
Please send a short author's introduction to the beginning of each story and a brief biography of the author at the end. This helps us determine if you are truly a "nonpublished writer." Send these along in the body of your E-mail or as attachments.
We can use one or two JPEG or GIF images with your story, so send them as E-mail attachments. If you've seen our pages you'll be aware of how much illustrations add to the stories.
If you have non-digital photos, but have no way to scan them, we can do it here. Just send us the print photo with a suitably stamped and addressed return envelope.
Remember, it is your responsibility to get permission to use any copyright material you submit, whether text or illustration.
Include your regular mailing address and telephone number for our records. All your personal information is kept strictly confidential. Note that we invite readers to contact you, but their messages are sent to us. We then redirect them to you. This assures your privacy. You can then reply to the sender directly, if you wish.
