If you have an essay or interview of 10,000 words or less that touches a topic of interest to the journal, send it to us. Manuscripts should follow the Chicago Manual of Style. We pay $0.01 per word with a minimum of $10. Please note that we do not publish creative nonfiction unless it is very pertinent to our vision. Non-fiction is published only in our annual year-end omnibus volume, not in the the small issues, due to space considerations.
