When sending attachments, please, make sure they're in a Word file/program. Otherwise, my computer refuses to open them.

All contributors accepted in Shadows & Light retain the rights to their work and are free to submit and publish said work in other magazines or anthologies.

Deadlines For Submissions:
Shadows & Light is a yearly anthology published in September. The deadline for all submissions is July 1st. I take a break from reading submissions September through December, so all submissions received during these months will remain unread until January. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Contributors will receive one print copy of the issue their work is published in. If contributors would like additional copies, they can order them through me at a discounted rate, plus shipping and handling. As each issue is published, I will order all contributor copies and distribute them via CreateSpace. I will inform individual contributors when their copy has been mailed.

Send all submissions to with "Submission" in the subject of the email. Attachments are preferred for short stories, but poetry, flash fiction, and self-help articles can be placed in the text portion of the email.

Happy writing!
