How do I get published in this e-magazine?

Go to the submissions tab at the top of the screen; read through the content guidelines and the Rules, Terms, and Conditions; then click the agree button and it'll take you to the submission form.

Does my submission need to be appropriate for all ages?

No. All stories of all ratings are available for submission, but you should avoid any material that doesn't add to the quality of your story.

Why wasn't my story selected?

Stories are judged blindly and individually. Some stories may not fit the feel of the magazine and some may need improvement before they can be selected. If you'd like specific feedback for your story, we provide critiques if the applicants request and pay ($16) for it at the time of submission.

How do I read past publications of The Gray Sisters?

There are no past publications yet. However, starting December 21st, 2020 Patreon members will recieve a monthly email with a password, which will allow them to access the archives portion of this website and read past publications. Join our Patreon by clicking on the Patreon button at the bottom of the screen.

Can I listen to these stories?

Yes! The Gray Sisters also has a podcast and one of our stories is released every two weeks.

Can I submit chapters of an ongoing story?

Yes. However, each "chapter" needs to be a stand alone story in it's own right, and acceptance of one does not guarantee that the others will be selected.

Can I submit more than one story at a time?

Yes. Each one must be submitted individually. If you want to have more than one submission critiqued, each critique must be selected and paid for separetely. They will all be judged on a one by one basis, and will be considered for the next issue.

When will I receive my critique?

Critiques for stories submitted to the summer issue will be sent out before the following December 21st. Critiques for stories submitted to the Winter issue will be sent out before the following June 21st. We appologize for the delay, but giving thoughtful critiques back for all the stories requested takes time. Thank you for your patience.

Can I enter if I'm under 18?

You can have your legal guardian enter on your behalf. The guardian's name will be entered as the legal name and the writer's name will be entered as the pen name. The rest of the contact information should be the legal guardians. If your story is selected, the payment will be made to your legal guardian's Paypal.
