This is a PAID opportunity for up and coming authors to have your work published in the Miss Read Books weekly blog, as well as be published in a monthly digital zine distributed to Miss Read Books email subscribers at the end of every month. Please see the guidelines for submissions below:

GUIDELINES Word Limit: 2000 words MAX, no exceptions

Pay Rate: $.03 per word. Payment via PayPal.

in the US, translated works are acceptable & encouraged!)

time non-exclusive anthology rights for our monthly Miss Read

Best of luck, I'm looking forward to reading your submissions!***
