Inquiry is required. Unsolicited submissions will not be accepted.
Digital submission/receipt is acceptable, however I'm old-fashioned and prefer hard-copy. It is much quicker, and easier to make notes. If you'd like to submit your work digitally, you can save on hassle and postage and I will print the pages for you (see associated fees). You may submit your own hard copy (address will be provided upon contract agreement) as well. Verbal/Personal consultation available. DropBox (online) and fax are also available options.
