Tip Jar Submissions are optional and will be treated exactly the same as standard submissions. Please follow the same guidelines as standard submissions with the exception of noting the genre for your submission in your submission title and in your cover letter.
A Tip Jar Submission will not increase your chances of publication, but you will be helping us to manage the costs of Submittable and to continue to pay contributors.

We're excited to see what you've created.
