You can set the story in the past or present. The story can take place anywhere in the world. It can include romance or action or tragedy or comedy. Kate wants well-developed stories that don't disintegrate at the end because they're rushed or major plot lines are unfinished. Develop characters. Draw readers in with specific details. Make them root for the protagonist. The audience is age 15 and up. Please, no sci-fi, dystopian, erotica, high fantasy, time-travel, futuristic, space travel, or western submissions. No love triangles, please." One story per author. Payment is $50 for accepted work. See website for online submission guidelines.
