We welcome EVERYONE to submit, but especially encourage visually impaired youth writers. All submissions made by non-visually-impaired writers should significantly explore the concept of vision. Visually impaired writers are free to submit work with any theme. We have NO tolerance for any type of abusive, discriminatory, prejudiced, or ableist work.
We are open to previously published work, as well as multiple and simultaneous submissions. While we do not require a formal cover letter, a description of your work and how it exemplifies our mission is encouraged. If you are a visually impaired writer, do indicate that as well. A short third-person biography is encouraged but not required. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All rights to your work stay with you at all times. That being said, should your work be published elsewhere, we ask you to credit Kalonopia.
