2007 Lit Mag Submission Guidelines

Here are the guidelines for submissions to the 2007 Writers' Community Literary Magazine:

**NEW DEADLINE: NOON ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 4TH** (see below for updated editorial staff meeting times)

1. All submitters must be Writers' Community members. Each member is welcome to submit up to 5 pieces.

2. All submissions must be in some way associated with the group: i.e. written during writing activities, workshopped in a meeting, or posted on the blog for comments.

3. Submissions need not be only from this semester; as long as the provisions stated in guideline 2 are fulfilled, older pieces are also welcome. Feel free to re-submit updated versions of pieces you submitted to last year's Lit Mag or spoken word CD that weren't chosen for either.

4. Submitting to us does not in any way mean you're turning over rights to your work: we will either publish it in this issue of the magazine or not use it at all, and in either case you're still welcome to submit it elsewhere. If for any reason some edits become necessary, we will consult you before changing anything.

5. Each piece must have a title (or else we'll call it Untitled) and be not more than 3 single-spaced pages long in 12-point Times font.

6. Pieces must be emailed as Microsoft Word attachments to Do not put your name in the word document, but please include it (as you would like it to appear in publication) in the email.

7. All submissions must be in by 11.59 p.m. on Friday November 2nd. You can start submitting now!

If you have any questions that aren't addressed here, leave a comment to this post or email me at You can also email me with specific questions about particular pieces.
