  1. Question: yes, we've published anonymously before. We have also published using a pseudonym. Either is fine.

    Sue: Hmmm. Not sure. I think we'd prefer it to be unpublished. And it's likely that even if it's been published before, our editorial board would have suggestions for revising it and polishing it further. We are compulsive like that. I'll get back with you. 🙂

    To everyone who wants to submit: woohoo! We want to read your essays! Please check out some of our past issues so you can get a feel for the type of essay we like to publish.

  2. Yes, we're willing to publish material "name withheld" if the subject matter is particularly sensitive. Using a pseudonym is also an option.

    Our emphasis is on previously unpublished writing, but we have reprinted on occasion.

    Further questions can be directed to the prose editor at segullah.prose@gmail.com

  3. Ah, the official policy on reprints, from Justine:

    "We can reprint something as long as the author has free reign of its use. They need to check with the publication they were contracted with the first time, or refer to their contract. If they have retained ownership of the piece, they can re-print it wherever they want. If, however, their contract states that they are selling the piece to the publisher, or if the publisher explicitly states re-printing rules, we should stay away from it."

  4. No, that doesn't count, and we have published those before. Quite a few, actually. But yeah, you'll probably want to rework it and add to it. Also everything that's submitted (even, or I guess especially)what's written by Segullah staff members, goes through an extensive revision process. It's fun to see the pieces evolve. Humbling, but fun too.
