We accept and read submissions year-round. The contests close a week before the magazine is set to be published. A specific date will show up soon so check back and submit often! 

Eat Your Serial Submission Guidelines
 
Format – .doc or .docx only please. 
 
Font – Times New Roman. If your piece is selected for publication and you feel there is a genuine, artistic reason for a particularly embellished font, we would be willing to discuss it.
 
Font Size – Size 12 for submissions. Again, if there are particular lines or portions of your text for which you feel a deviation from this would strengthen the piece, it's open for discussion should the piece be selected for publication.
 
Spacing – Double spaced with one-inch margins, please.
 
Title and Author – For submission purposes, please put name and title in the top left hand of the page.
 
Numbering – Please number pages in the top right.
 
Completeness – As a literary piece can change dramatically from conception to completion, we will only consider completed pieces submitted in full for publication.
 
Plagiarism – If evidence is found that any part of your piece is plagiarized, your piece will be rejected, and any pieces that you submit in the future will not be read or considered.
 
Eat You Serial reserves the right to reject submissions for any reason.
