How Selections Are Made

— Based on trigger warnings, diversity markers, and genre, each piece will be passed on to the most suitable editor(s). 
— They will read it and consider the following:

  • Grammar
  • Storytelling
  • Flow
  • Plot
  • Information
  • Voice
  • Authenticity
  • Accuracy
  • Enjoyment

— After all applicable parties weigh in, the executive Editor and Associate Editor will read the preferred pieces and decide which will be included, based on overall flow and feel of the volume. 

— Once the selections are made and publication is accepted by the author, the Executive Editor, Associate Editor, and Copy Editor will go through each contribution and supply suggested edits (when applicable) to the writer for their approval.

Note: We aim to be as authentic and inclusive as possible. We are not looking for anyone jumping on a bandwagon, but rather an accurate representation of the world we live in. Selecting work that is free of appropriation, exploitation, fetishization, objectification, and tokenism.
