Manuscripts must be submitted between April Fools day and April 30, 2017. Submissions are accepted through Submittable only. To submit, include a manuscript of at least 48 pages. A new rule change for us: manuscripts will no longer be read blind. So feel free to include your name, though including your name or other identifying information is not necessary. Manuscripts will be selected by the editors. Notification will be in late summer of 2017 and publication in 2019.
