Please make sure your article conforms to the following restrictions:

1) Articles must be attached to a brief cover letter in the email text containing the author's name, institutional affiliation, and contact information.

7) We are open access and are looking for the widest possible global audience. As such, we do not publish profanity, gratuitously violent, or erotic work. If the material is not vital to your argument, cut it. If it is, you may consider submitting it elsewhere or eliding word choice etc. with hyphens.

A note on reading times: We publish twice a year. Our reading period for spring is January through June with the spring edition decision and publication coming in late June/early July. Our reading period for fall is July through December with the fall edition decision and publication coming late December/early January.

Send your work when it is ready, and we will consider it for the next available issue.
