Important stuff

We nominate pieces for all of the various year-end anthologies we can find—the Pushcart Prize, the multiple Best Americans, Best New Poets, O.Henry and Best of the Net, as well as any others we discover.
Don't include your name in the document or file.
We currently pay $30 per piece, or $100 for a feature—the author’s payment rising with the more Pay-it-Forward submissions we receive.
Features are ‘folios’ from the same writer which will be published all together, and carry a payment of $100. There should be something that unites the pieces, whether it’s a thematic or stylistic unity.
Tidepools is an occasional feature of very short works, 25 words and under. These are submitted via the normal portals, and publication in the Tidepools feature pays $10.
Waterlogged Paper is the category for pieces which have been published in print but do not appear online. Waterlogged Paper publication pays $10.
Coastal Shelf acquires first-time North American electronic rights for work published in Coastal Shelf Magazine as well as anthology rights to reprint the work in print for up to five years with an additional payment of 2 copies of the printed anthology.
