Submission Guidelines

We are open for submissions from January 1st-March 1st.
 
Email all submissions to SpiritLakeBooU (AT) gmail (DOT) com along with a short 50-word biography in the body of your email. While you are welcome to submit works in different genres, we request that you include all works you intend to submit for the reading period in one emailed submission. Multiple emailed submissions by the same contributor will not be considered. Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions as long as authors notify us at  SpiritLakeBooU (AT) gmail (DOT) com  as soon as a piece is accepted elsewhere.
