If you’d like your writing featured on the Other Otter, email your piece or pitch to theotherottersub@gmail.com. Just make sure you follow these guidelines:

  • Please paste the entire document into the email message, as we will not open attachments.
  • Your subject line should be the title of your piece.
  • Below your submission, please include the title, your name, email address, and a short bio (1-3 sentences).
  • Right now we are accepting ANYTHING – essays, short stories, poems, short plays, lists, interviews, particularly hilarious rejection letters. Though we are very lenient on this, please try to keep your submissions under 1,000 words, because that seems to be when our heads start to hurt.

We will contact you within two weeks (if not way, way sooner). We read every single word you send us, promise.
