Attention contributors: If you have been in the Journal before, I may have to make an adjustment to your name in the sidebar. This is because the web program I use will not duplicate names-this means that if your name was already here as Doe, John I may need to change it to  Doe,J or Doe, Mr. the next time. I have been researching new programs but it is not a priority to change right now.

Please read The Shine Journal so you know what kind of work is featured.

Guidelines:

All published works are also archived online and may be featured in print anthologies without additional payment. All rights revert to the authors after publication. We ask that we be advised if the work is or has been published elsewhere.

 

Please spellcheck and proofread your work carefully. Please avoid gratuitous sex, profanity, or work which disrespects or demeans an ethnic group, a person's sexual orientation or physical/mental challenge. In other words, although I am not a prude or easily offended, the intent of  The Shine Journal is to showcase work of the highest quality. I reserve the right to define what that means for this publication.

 

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

1.Please do NOT indent paragraphs in your short stories and articles.

 

2.Please SINGLE space within paragraphs and DOUBLE space between paragraphs.

 

3.For poems: Please SINGLE space within stanzas and DOUBLE space between stanzas.  

                                             

I may make small edits to your work without notice to you. These usually include punctuation, spacing, etc. but that' s why I'm the editor. (smile)
