We have an open submissions policy: we read unsolicited work, which means that it is not necessary for writers to submit through a literary agent.

More Information for Writers
PLEASE NOTE: We have a new policy for unsolicited submissions. After November 1st, 2010, we will respond only to submissions of interest. We read every submission within four months of receipt, but we can no longer respond to every one. If you do not receive a response from us after four months, we have declined to publish your submission.
After November 1st, 2010, please do not enclose an SASE. We will not be returning materials received after that date. Please be sure to include current contact information (mail address, email, and phone number) on cover letter and first page of manuscript.
We understand that writers are inconvenienced by delayed responses and lengthy waits. We feel that this change in our policy allows our small staff to read all submissions in a timely manner and continue to be open to unsolicited work.
