    1. Hey, I am trying to submit, but it keeps giving me a malfunction code. If you can please assist, I would appreciate it.



      • We seek to make submissions easy for you!

        Email workzine @ with your file attached as "SUBMISSION" in the subject line. 

        Or you may paste the content of your text into the contact form to submit online. Sadly, the form does not allow attachments due to our current hosting limitations. 

    2. Hey there, if a writer doesn’t hear anything during the six month reading period does that mean the story has been rejected?

      • We endeavor to send a response within that time frame. It is possible submissions vanish into SPAM or the webform doesn’t function properly. If you suspect a submission was lost, email directly to workzine @ and check in. 


        Thank you for asking!
