Submission Guidelines

Format: Send your submission as an attachment in a standard text format such as .doc, .docx, or as plain text (.txt) or as a common image file type such as .png, .jpeg, or .bmp to filibuster@aum.edu. Also, please include in the subject line of the email the kind of submission following by the title of the work (e.g. Subject: Poem - "My Poem's Title"). There is no limit on the number of submissions per person. Submissions not accepted for Filibuster 2014 are eligible for forwarding to Filibuster 2016.

Word Limit: Please limit writing submissions to 4000 words or less; however, if the editors determine that a longer work calls for a full treatment in Filibuster, a submission in excess of this limit may still be considered for publication.
