Please title your file after your piece with your last name and the name of the anthology you are submitting to. For example: The Grapes Of Wrath_Steinbeck_Anthology Name.docx 

In your email, please address your emails To The Editor. Be professional and edit your emails before you send them (making a good first impression!). Do not send a blank email. Tell us who you are, have you been published before (sorry, your fifth-grade picture book doesn't count), give us links to your publications and public social media, and tell us in 100 words or so what your short story is about.
