We are moving our office and warehouse, and making some major changes, so please pardon our dust during site reconstruction. Some information may be out of date, incomplete, or not yet working. If you have submitted work to us and are awaiting a response, we are extremely far behind on our reading, so we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Current News and Updates

We sent out an update via Submittable to all Undeniable: Writers Respond to Climate Change authors, updating you on the editing process and requesting any edits that were made to pieces between acceptance and now. Our editing process has begun, and we are reaching out with edits to each author individually. Please keep an eye on your Submittable messages.

Congratulations to our nominees for the 2019 Best of the Net Award: S. R. Aichinger, Andrea L. Hackbarth, Wes Jamison, Linda Quinlan, Ricky Ray, Daryl Scroggins, Melanie S. Smith, and Teresa Sutton!

We sent out an update on Footnote #3. If you did not receive it, check your Submittable account. All pieces are edited, and we are working with final layout of the issue now.

Due to a recent misunderstanding, we want to clarify for all authors that royalty spreadsheets are only updated when there are new sales. If there are no sales for the specified time period, then spreadsheets are not updated at that time.
