your grandma's in jailSubmit to STANDARDS

Submissions of original, unpublished fiction, prose, poetry, drama, performance art, photography, visual art, and all points in between, may be submitted by our email link, throughout the year. Please send an email enquiry first. If we then request your submission, send by email attachment, using either a Word for Mac file or as an ASCII/text only file. Visual art should be sent as either GIFs or JPEGs, saved as no more than 256 colors, preferably compressed. No original materials can be returned. Please include a return email address. Text in languages other than English and Spanish are accepted, with accompanying translation to English. (In opposition to the negative effects of current "English Only" laws on the burgeoning Latino/Spanish speaking populations in the United States, we have printed some "Spanish only" texts in this volume.) For all submissions, please allow six to eight weeks for editorial consideration.




Future issues of STANDARDS will continue our tributes to the BEST OF THE MULTICULTURAL JOURNALS around the world. Editors may submit up to five (5) entries previously published in their pages; we will select our favorite, and design all 5 entries, to appear in our web pages. We will also include a listing of progressive, not-for-profit multicultural print journals around the world, including submission and subscription information, as available. Texts will appear in their original languages, and should be accompanied by an English translation.

Inquiries regarding our journal may be sent to:
