Why There Are Words


If you’re interested in reading, please email whytherearewords AT gmail DOT com.


Submission Guidelines:

1.  Obviously: original work only.

2. Please send a single file containing all submitted materials, including your bio. Your bio must  include the address of your website.

2.  No more than 8 minutes total reading time, which equates to 3.5-4 pages of double-spaced prose, 12 pt. text, or 4-6 poems, depending on length. Submissions with more will be deleted unread.

3.  Include your name, phone number, and e-mail within the body of your email.

4.  Please do not send your work to any other email address or contact form (i.e. don’t contact Peg via her website!)
