Requirements

From Blue Mountain Cards:

Contemporary prose or poetry written from personal experience that reflects the thoughts and feelings people today want to communicate to one another, but don’t always know how to put into words. Because our cards capture genuine emotions on topics such as love, friendship, family, missing you, and other real-life subjects, we suggest that you have a friend, relative, or someone else in your life in mind as you write. Writings on special occasions (birthday, anniversary, congratulations, etc.), as well as the challenges, difficulties, and aspirations of life are also considered. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the¬†products prior to submitting material, but don’t study them too hard. We are looking for new, original, and creative writings that do not sound like anything we have already published.


How to Apply

Send to editorial@sps.com. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS OR WEBSITE LINKS. You may submit as many different works as you wish all in the same e-mail. Type or paste the text of your work(s) into the body of the e-mail. Be sure to include your name, address, and telephone number. E-mail submissions will receive a reply within 1-2 weeks as receipt of your submission. If you do not hear from us again within 4 months, you can assume that your work is no longer under consideration.
