As you all know, we ordinarily don’t take submissions. The magazine publishes work by invitation only. From time to time, we do open up submissions for our set essay series — My First Job, What It’s Like Living Here, and Childhood. We’ve had some great work come in. You’ll see it in the coming issues. But we’ve decided to close the submissions window, at least temporarily, because of the extra work it occasions.
We’ve taken down the submissions page, and any new submissions will be sent back unread.
