MEA seeks submissions for its digital magazines throughout the year. We publish military veteran writers or family members who are interested in transforming their military experience into literary fiction. 

You have a couple of options when submitting a piece to us, either of which will allow you to be considered for publication:  

If you are willing to revise your work, one of our staff will provide you with one-on-one consultation guidance as you work through several drafts. The editors assigned to you are professional writers, educators, and published authors who have volunteered to help veterans learn the craft of writing. MEA’s primary mission is to help veterans and family members build their skills in creative expression, and we strongly encourage you to take us up on our offer.

We also understand that not everyone is willing to revise their work for one reason or another, and would just like to have their piece considered for publication. We give you the option of having our editors consider your submission on the basis of simple acceptance or rejection.


**Please note the following**

-One submission per writer

-Maximum 5000 words

-Please double space the document and use 12pt font

-Submitting and/or working with an editor does not guarantee publication. Though all work will be considered, and every writer given an opportunity to learn and revise, we simply can't publish everything submitted to us.

-We will not, under any circumstances, consider work that has been previously published elsewhere.

-By submitting your work here you are agreeing to MEA's Copyright and Privacy stipulations located online at http://militaryexperience.org/copyright-and-privacy/

-Here are some specific guidelines from our editors for your reference: http://militaryexperience.org/how-to-write-a-story-that-mea-will-publish/ 

If you have any questions, please email the Editor-in-Chief at president@militaryexperience.org
