• Simultaneous submissions of the same manuscript to other publishers or contests are acceptable but please notify us by email (submit@hubcity.org) if your manuscript has been accepted elsewhere.

• While translations and manuscripts in languages other than English are not acceptable, manuscripts that occasionally use words from other languages are perfectly fine.

• No revisions of submitted manuscripts will be allowed during the contest.

• We ask that you do NOT include a bio or an acknowledgements page with your manuscript since all manuscripts will be read anonymously by our readers, editors, and judge.

• Manuscripts should include one title page with the manuscript’s title only. [NOTE: this has changed since we started accepting online submissions only]
