Submissions Are Closed

Our second submission window, for the second 25 entries, will open at 7:00 PM EST.


Submit in PLAIN TEXT in a PLAIN TEXT email for best results! Rejections for too-high word counts are almost always due to invisible rich-text characters that the bot counts as words.

  1. Poor Authoress, I feel your pain because I went through this with you too a few months ago. Maybe you should add text to the instructions you always post about entering that states the following steps:

    1)Cut and paste your entry text into Notepad to strip it.
    2)Open your email and change the settings to compose in plain text. If you can't find a way to do this, get a new email client. There are free ones you can register for (google, godaddy, etc.) **this is what I had to end up doing because I couldn't get my email client to show me an option for PLAIN TEXT. So, I got a new one and found that option easily.**
    3)Hand type the GENRE: etc. information into the email body and then cut/paste your entry text from Notepad into the email body.
