All submissions of both written and artistic material must cover a topic or theme that is relevant and sensitive to issues concerning women. However, female authorship is not a prerequisite. We welcome the creative input of men also, believing that balance is necessary in all things. Please note that, while all editions do have a theme, topics are not required to be limited to that subject. Variety is welcomed.
It is our policy to consider all submissions received up to the posted deadlines. Selections are made at that time, and all artists and authors will be notified shortly thereafter.
We encourage writers of all ages and experience levels to consider submitting their work to Moondance in the appropriate sections. While age is not a consideration for or barrier to acceptance, we do require all contributors under the age of eighteen to obtain parental permission prior to publication.
Because we do not charge our readers, contributors will not receive monetary compensation for their submissions. However, they will receive other benefits, including the option of direct links to e-mail or URL addresses of the author or artist, a short biography of the author or artist, consideration for Best of Theme and mention of their published piece in our newsletter.
All submissions should include a short bio, an e-mail address and/or a URL for the author or artist at the time of submission.
