PLEASE NOTE: Due to the academic and parental obligations of our editorial staff, the online and print divisions of Silverthought, including our Offense Mechanisms and Elm Ridge Books imprints, will be closed to unsolicited submissions throughout 2015. We'll be back once we get that PhD and newborn baby out of the way.

Thank you for your interest in Silverthought, and we wish you all the best with your writing.
