INCLUDE FULL NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS AND MAILING ADDRESS WITH SUBMISSION. IF ANY OF THIS IS MISSING, I WILL DELETE YOUR SUBMISSION. I WON’T READ WHAT I CAN’T CHOOSE.

NO PEN NAMES, FAKE NAMES, CUTE NAMES. YOUR EMAIL SHOULD IDENTIFY AND CORRESPOND TO YOUR NAME LISTED. BE A WRITER, STAND BY YOUR WORK OR PAY LOTS OF MONEY FOR CONTESTS THAT DON'T ABOUT YOU ANYHOW.
