We do accept simultaneous submissions. In the event that a piece is accepted for publication elsewhere, please either withdraw the entire submission via Submittable or leave a note on your submission indicating which piece(s) you want to withdraw.

Please submit up to 20 individual low res files. In addition, please provide a brief (under 500 words) artist's statement in your cover letter.
