Write for Us
- We are looking for the best writing from members of The Diamond Valley Writers Guild. You must be a member to submit.
- We accept short stories, essays, personal memoirs, poetry, book excerpts--in short, anything with literary merit. We do not accept religious, political, or erotic work.
- We prefer all submissions to be no longer than 1500 words. Any length greater than this will be considered, but has less chance getting published.
- Please send your short story, essay, personal memoir, poetry, or book excerpt as a WORD document.
- With any work you send, please include a short personal biography, author website address, author photograph, and, if you have one, a photo or illustration that compliments your submission.
- We do not pay for submissions. Perhaps in the future, but for now we are the members of the non-profit Diamond Valley Writers Guild. We publish Straitjackets Magazine for the joy of sharing our work with others.
- We expect only one time rights. We will consider reprint material.
- The deadline for the Fall 2018 issue is September 10, 2018.
Submit your work by sending an e-mail and attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
The Straitjackets staff
