The manuscript’s the thing.
If you send your submission to the wrong address, don’t worry, we’ll get it to the right place.
If you forget to send a check, don’t worry, we’ll get in touch.
If you somehow mess up the instructions, don’t worry. It’s OK. We are not here to impose penalties on you. We want you to get in, we really do! We read each manuscript thoroughly and determine its merits. There are no red marks on your paper or strikes against you. We strive to look for the positive in every submission we receive.
