Deb: Alaska Shorts

Looking for a well-trafficked online venue for your work? 49
Writers can help. If you’re an Alaskan, or you’ve written about Alaska,
submit your creative work, or a portion of it, to Alaska Shorts. Here’s how it
  1. Entries
    must conform to our editorial policy. We publish poetry and prose. Either the author or the subject
    matter must be Alaskan. You may submit an entire work, or an excerpt. We
    will consider no more than two submissions per author within the same
  2. We
    need your real name and real email address.
  3. Absolutely
    no more than 800 words per entry, excluding the bio paragraph, which must
    be fewer than 100 words.
  4. Entries
    must be your own original work. You keep the copyright, but by submitting
    you’re giving us permission to post.
  5. Not
    all submissions will be published. The editors at 49 Writers reserve the right
    to select and to publish at their sole discretion, on a space available
    basis. If your work doesn’t get posted, don’t assume we don’t like it. It
    simply may not fit our editorial needs or schedule.
  6. One
    small jpg photo may be attached with your entry.
  7. Submissions
    are accepted on a rolling basis. Email to with the words
    “Alaska Shorts” in the subject line. We accept only Word documents or
    submissions embedded in the email text. Submissions MUST be single spaced,
    Times New Roman, with NO paragraph indentions (space between paragraphs).
    The bio paragraph, if any, should come at the end, and it must be in
    italics. If the formatting is not
    correct, your submission will not be considered.
  8. We
    will make every attempt to notify you prior to posting your submission,
    but we cannot guarantee to do so. You can maximize your readership by
    sharing the link to your published post with your social media and email
  9. We
    reserve the right to edit your work but do not promise to do so. We do NOT
    make corrections or changes after the post has been published unless the
    error is our own, and we do not correct based on appearance alone, as the
    Blogger platform suffers from occasional glitches in formatting that are
    beyond our control.
  10. We
    will make every effort to acknowledge receipt of your submission, but our
    volunteer staff is unable to respond to follow-up queries. If your work
    has not been posted within six months of submission, feel free to
