Submissions are accepted, reviewed, and published on a more-or-less rolling basis. Work accepted for publication in Swink�s online edition will be featured in the online edition�s main pages for two to four weeks, then moved to the online edition archive. � All pieces should be original and previously unpublished. We acquire first North American serial rights and one-time non-exclusive anthology rights. � We prefer that fiction and nonfiction submissions be not too much more than 3000 words�though longer pieces will be considered. Very short pieces are welcome. � Poetry submissions should contain a maximum of five shortish poems or three longish ones. � Submissions (one story, essay, or department feature; 1-5 poems) should be sent in a single file attached to your email�MS Word is preferable; RTF is acceptable; when all else fails, copy and paste into the body of the email�with the contributor�s name, email address, and phone number at the top of the piece and a brief bio at the end. � Please indicate clearly in the subject line of your email and at the top of your submission the department to which you�re submitting work. � You may submit more than one piece at a time. � Simultaneous submissions are accepted, provided you let us know and agree to alert us immediately if your piece is accepted elsewhere. � With all due respect, please don�t send cover letters. All we want to read is your brilliant submission. � We�ll do our very best to respond to all submissions within a month�but we aren�t making promises about that. Please, please, please don�t email to nudge us about your submissions; we know it�s a drag to wait, but rest assured we will be in touch with you eventually, one way or the other.
