Multiple submissions are welcomed
Rather than relying on a system that simply “accepts” or “rejects” submissions for the journal, we strive to be as all-encompassing as possible. Our goal is to encourage and empower writers and artists to voice their stories and ideas.
Our editing team will review each submission carefully and will provide feedback to the writer/artist. We aim for the editing process to be a two-way dialogue. We will inform the writers if grammatical changes need to be made and will provide suggestions for content and structure; however, we also wish to respect the stylistic choices of the authors and to honor the stories/ideas in their authentic form.
We will NOT, however, accept content that is sexually explicit, discriminatory to any group based on race/ethnicity/nationality/sexual orientation/gender identity/ability, or that reveals personal details about a person without their consent (please abide by HIPAA regulations: www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/security/laws-regulations/index.html).
