Though eager to accept a wide range of literary fiction, we do not consider formula fiction, young adult dramas, stock romances, juvenile literature, short story collections, cookbooks, how-to books, self-help, fantasy, and anything that might recommend itself as a “quick read.” Further, we do not consider electronic submissions.
