Please send us original submissions that are fresh, polished and resonate with emotion.  Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. We imposed a nominal reader's fee, this year, of $10.  

Stories: 3000 words or less, preferably. We would like to have stories with strong arcs and compelling characters. Put your name, email, website url (if applicable) on the first page. Put the title of your story in the header.  Prior publication is acceptable provided there are no usage issues.

Non-Fiction Articles:  We are looking for articles that focus on the craft of writing, and any news that is pertinent to working writers. Put your name, email, and website url (if applicable) on the first page. Put the title of your piece in the header.  Prior publication is acceptable provided there are no usage issues. 

Poems: Any length is acceptable and multiple poem submissions are encouraged. We like all forms of poetry: free verse as well as more traditional forms. If your poetry is insightful, lyrical and makes us cry, we'll want to publish it. Put your name, email and website url (if applicable) on the first page. Prior publication is acceptable provided there are no usage issues. 

We will try to respond to your submissions in a timely fashion. As SHR runs lean, please give us at least a couple of weeks.
