We accept unsolicited submissions all year long. Please submit only one story or essay at a time (10,000 words or fewer). Our average response time is twelve to sixteen weeks. We pay writers $100 piece. All writers are paid the same amount, regardless of where are they might be in their writing career. 

The publishing industry has a long way to go in terms of diversity and championing Black writers. If you are a Black writer, we’d like to invite you to submit your work to us free of charge. You may do so here.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
