Please format submissions with standard margins, double-spacing, and 12 point Times New Roman font. Please send as Word .doc or .docx attachments.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, we will return feedback on manuscript critique submissions on an average of three weeks of receipt. Rush service may be available. Check with your individual editor if you require a speedy turnaround.
For manuscript critiques, we require a deposit of half the fee before we begin, and the balance upon completion of the project before we email out our notes. We only accept payment via PayPal. We will invoice you, which means in addition to our fees you will pay a small fee to PayPal.
