Welcome to an E-Zine that has a paying contest in each and every issue!

Every submission is considered for inclusion in our contests.

We have no preference for any ‘genre’ (kind, category or sort of writing)

so don’t hesitate to submit your work. The main stipulation is that

all work must be previously unpublished.

However, we assume only the first publication rights. Check out the submission

process and what the contest prizes are by clicking on the link buttons.
