How to Submit

Include your name and contact information, including your email address, within the attachment, but on the cover sheet only. This information will help us track your submission and get in touch with you quickly.We understand your need to use a pseudonym but we need to know who you are. We also understand the need for utmost confidentiality. We will NEVER reveal names of authors to anyone, and the choice to use a pseudonym or a real name is entirely up to the author and should be considered very seriously. On request of the author we will destroy your contact information, including location, and any records we have of your true identity, but we cannot completely guarantee privacy for those concerned about police and court investigations. In publication, we will use your name or pseudonym but will strip your name of social status modifiers such as “MD” or “Rev.” We will leave in clarifying suffixes such as “Jr” if the author chooses.
