Simultaneous submissions are accepted, just let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Contact: editor.theincubator@gmail.com with your work pasted into the body of the email and attached in a word document.

There is no need to send a biography, but please do say hello.

Expect to hear back within six weeks of sending your work.

We cannot offer individual feedback.

* The Incubator is an unfunded, self-supporting journal. Unfortunately we cannot offer payment nor contributors’ copies at this time; we do not receive any funds from print copies that are purchased. Every issue can be downloaded for free and shared within seconds.

Many thanks,

The Editors
