here at the “offices” of hoax, we welcome submissions that may be very intense, emotional, controversial, and personal. however, we ask that contributors use trigger warnings when e-mailing us such pieces. one of the benefits of collaborating on this project is that we can split up material that is particularly upsetting or unnerving to either of us. this helps ensure that the reviewing and editing process is emotionally safe and does not interfere with our decision making.
additionally, we are willing to work with potential contributors throughout all stages of the writing process. please note that we offer edits on most submissions in the hopes of ensuring that readers with a variety of lived experiences and reading comprehension skills will be able to fully grasp the depth of your piece. please be flexible and willing to work with us if we make changes or offer suggestions. we will absolutely not print anything that you do not fully approve of.
thank you for understanding.
