By submitting to Metafore, the author grants us first publishing rights & non-exclusive electronic permissions (for online archival purposes). We do not accept genre fiction or work with excessive violence or sexual content. 

 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please alert your editor via email if a piece is accepted elsewhere.
