GUIDELINES

Please read through before sending us your work

While we welcome everyone’s work, we do have set themes for each issue. We usually announce them on social media as well as on here. You don’t need to be strictly on theme but please don’t send us work that has no correlation whatsoever.

That being said, as long as your work checks the following boxes, we can’t wait to read it!
