For fiction, we are looking for a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 4000.
For nonfiction, we are looking for a person named Vinny (sp?)
For poetry, we are looking for anything you can fit on three pages (8.5 by 11, standard margins).
We do not care who you are. You are welcome to include a cover letter and as much superfluous self-indulgence as you want, but it will be filtered through multiple editors and the first person to see your attributes will either make fun of you to the next editor or change the information just enough to make it sound normal.
Any font, any spacing, any size, as long as we have received your words, we will usually just change them to a size 12 font and print them out.
