A Few Things You Might Care To Know Before Submitting

* Unfortunately, we cannot at this time offer any monetary compensation for accepted work.
* We acquire serial rights in North America and only consider previously unpublished work (online or print). We ask that you credit [out of nothing] as the first place of publication.
* Simultaneous submissions are okay but we kindly request immediate notification if the piece is picked up by another publisher.
* We'd also like to be able republish pieces in future print anthologies, issues, etc., based on the writer/artists's consent, and under terms to be negotiated.
* We fully support Creative Commons licensing for any or all of the work we publish. Should you wish to include a CC licensing agreement with your piece / pieces, please provide the desired terms. We can then work together to ensure proper registration of your work.
* There is no word limit on submissions. We accept all standard file formats but we prefer compressed files (mpeg, jpeg, etc) for initial evaluation. We will ask for originals/high resolution files upon acceptance. (No .docx files please. We're still in the MS Office Stone Age.) Submitters should bear in mind that ours is a web publication and that issues of storage and bandwidth always apply. We will verify all formatting, etc. upon acceptance.
* We are international, just like pancakes, and accept submissions from all parts of the world. Works in translation are also accepted.
* We accept electronic submissions only. Please send your work to us at: shelling [.] peanuts [at]
* We prefer submissions in the form of email attachments. Please include your name (first and last) in the file name of the attachment in your message. Please include multiple submissions in a single file with a cover page detailing the contents of your submission.
* When submitting, please include the following information, in the following format, in your subject heading: [Lastname.Nothing].
* Submissions may be accompanied by a 50-100 biographical note, either attached or pasted in the body of your message.
* All submissions will all be reviewed by at least 3 readers.
* Please allow 3 - 6 months response time.
