The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful





Description
With Short Circuit, we’re hoping that each issue will add something new to inspire, delight, move, and challenge readers, transporting them outside of their daily lives, if even for five minutes.


Read the contract terms carefully for non-standard terms that may affect an author keeping control of their own work, such as transfer of copyright, committing to publication at time of submission, lack of time-based reversion of rights clause, etc
