BLACKLIGHT STORIES SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Telling stories about your experiences with magic is difficult and liberating. Sometimes it's hard to know exactly what to say and how to say it. These guidelines will help you to frame your story and give it a better chance of being included in Blacklight.
Your story should be a true story about you (written in the first person) and how you felt about what took place. Ideally, your story should in some way ask, relate to, or attempt to answer one of the "big questions" in life that come up when you accept a magical world view, for example: "What really exists beyond everyday perception?" "Does magic really work?" "What happens to us when we die?" We strongly encourage you to read the stories already online to get an idea of the kinds of pieces we publish.
Your story should be between 500 and 1,000 words long. A title is not necessary or even desirable. You should submit it in the body of an email message (not as an attachment) and the theme that you're submitting in should be in the subject line of the email message.
Blacklight Stories follow themes that change every month. Again, you are encouraged to read the stories in your chosen theme before submitting.
