Help support us to support you!

Tip Jar submissions help us keep our publication afloat and growing. We keep Tip Jar submissions open year-round with a guaranteed expedited response, which means no matter the time of year we will send you a publication decision within a week (7 days) of submission, whereas the free submission responses can be more erratic with regards to response time. 

Other than the $3/$5/$10 fee to make it happen and the guaranteed response time, our requirements for expedited submissions are the same as free submissions, which are as follows:


  • No minimum word count. Roughly 8,000 words maximum.
  • Number your pages.
  • Submit a cover letter with your contact information included.
  • We encourage simultaneous submissions, but please let us know in your cover letter if it is a simultaneous submission. If your piece is accepted elsewhere, please let us know ASAP, and congratulations!

General Housekeeping:

  • If you have not heard a response after a week, you can email us with the header “Submission Status” and we’ll be happy to let you know about the status of your submission.
  • If you publish with us, you will receive a complimentary copy of the issue your piece is in.

 For an insight into our preferences, check out the "Submit" tab on the Levee website.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
