Writer’s Guidelines & Tidbits

Fiction Stacks

Fiction Stacks (Photo credit: chelmsfordpubliclibrary)

It is official:  The Kentucky Mountain Girl News is open for the following submissions: non-fiction (essays), fiction (short stories), & poetry.

The Kentucky Mountaingirl News does not buy rights of any sort.  The author of the piece retains all rights to his or her work, but does receive a by-line.

Length: 800 – 5,500 words.  If a piece is longer and is interesting it can go into a serialization of a weekly post.  Poetry should be no more than 2 pages in length.

Genres:  Open.  Do not wish to see unnecessary violence and gore.  Rape stories will not be published.  Be tasteful.

Submissions:  All submissions should be made within the body of an email for security’s sake and SUBMISSION should be in the subject line as well as type, i.e. poetry, fiction, non-fiction, etc. Your name should also appear there.  Submissions will not be “automatically” published.  I will edit the pieces for spelling and grammatical errors, and will include the author in this process.  You may attach a longer piece in .rtf format for consideration.

E-mail:  editor@kmgn.net

Notes:  More will be listed as time passes and submissions come in.  It is difficult to get published but as your by-line grows so does your chances of being an accredited author with publications under your belt.

    When someone writes an post he/she keeps the thought of
    a user in his/her brain that how a user can know it.
    So that’s why this piece of writing is outstdanding.
