From the Chapman guidelines:

We welcome unsolicited submissions (in readable font – 12 pt recommended), which MUST be accompanied by an SAE or International Reply Coupons or an email address for our reply to obviate this need. If you wish a typescript returned, please ensure enough return postage. NO EMAIL SUBMISSIONS, PLEASE, except by prior agreement, since this gives us extra secretarial work!

* Poetry: send four to ten poems – laid out so that the shape and structure of the work is shown to best advantage (12 font/15-16 line space ideal). One poem to each sheet.

* Fiction: any length, any topic, but average is 3,000 words – the criterion is quality. No more than one item at a time. We are looking for fiction which is challenging, surprising, different – in some way.

* Prose: critical articles are usually commissioned, but suggestions/ ideas are always welcome.

* Illustrations/artwork: we accept artwork with submissions at our discretion. Our artwork is usually specially commissioned.
