Editorial Policy

Our journal and press began as a labor of love for our editor-in-chief, Gessy Alvarez. We are an all-volunteer organization. The guiding principle of our journal and press is to keep operations simple and personable. We take small but crucial steps every year to build a nurturing environment and provide a supportive approach to the editorial process.

Our editor-in-chief (EIC) reviews all submissions and forwards selections to the assistant editors and readers. The assistant editors and readers review these selections, judge the works’ readiness for publication, and report back to the EIC. The EIC may ask assistant editors and readers for more feedback and/or editorial suggestions. Assistant editors and readers are only in direct communication with EIC. The EIC makes all final decisions regarding publication.

We welcome submissions from ALL. We especially want to encourage more submissions from women and non-binary writers, writers of color, and the LGBTQIA community. Help our community grow in diversity and beauty!

Email submissions are not acceptable. Please use our Submittable link below and read our guidelines carefully.
