(Photographers, please note this post is about the writers submitting.)
I appreciate the many submissions received for each issue of moonShine review. I am here as an independent publisher to give voice to independent writers who are trying to have their first (or third, or tenth) unpublished work out there for the world to read.
But, sometimes, I feel the need to send folks BACK to the submission guidelines page (perhaps because some submissions don’t meet any of the guidelines we’ve set in place).
Please read our guidelines before submitting:
If you really cannot click the mouse and read the guidelines, then please, at least, meet my top 4 requirements:
(1) Do NOT put your name anywhere on the piece itself—we judge anonymously.
(2) IN THE BODY OF THE email, include ALL your contact info (mailing address, email, phone).
(3) Your bio needs to be 50 words or less and written in the THIRD PERSON.
(4) FOLLOW the formatting guidelines listed on our “submissions guidelines” page. (Sending you to the link anyway!)
My #1 advice when submitting? Read our “About moonShine review” page. It answers common questions, such as “What theme do you have this time?” or “What is your journal about”
Thank you all for your continued support, and I really do value your input. If the guidelines are, in any way, unclear, please email me directly and let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am ALWAYS open to feedback and improvement of our journal and our website.
