We will not consider any previously published material unless you are an author whose work has gone out of print and the rights have reverted back to you.

A literary agent is not required for submission. Telephone inquiries are not accepted.

Due to the large number of submissions, please allow 3 to 4 weeks for us to review your submission and come to a decision.
