WRITER'S GUIDELINES

EYES ONLY


EYES ONLY is an adult straight "Man from U.N.C.L.E." fanzine.

Characters must be written true to form for the series, book, or movies. 'True to form' means the characters may not be turned into elves or any other otherworldly creatures, and must act and speak much the same as they did on the show. They can be involved in action/adventure, love, revenge, what-if (speculation), or mystery type stories. Please, no cross universe (unless it is spy related, such as Equalizer, Get Smart, I Spy, etc.), alternate universe, slash ("/"), or story reprint, including off the web (unless you ask me first). No graphic torture, beastiality, or rape. Since this is an adult zine, sexual scenes are encouraged and may range from PG-13 to X, but should be a part of the story. I strongly discourage mere 'bed bouncers.' I am looking for stories with plots.

Verification that a submission has been accepted will be sent out shortly after receipt of the manuscript. I may take longer to get edits to you though.

I would prefer receiving all manuscripts electronically via email in MS Word format. I have Word 2011 on my system. I also have Open Office. If all else fails, embed the story inside the text part of the email and send that way. Don't worry about formatting, other than italic and paragraph, as I will change the font and spacing to fit the zine. My email address is below.

After a story has been edited, it will be sent back to you electronically, for any rewrites. Please be sure to put your name on the story, and your address in the email! Stories will be edited for: spelling and punctuation errors (please indicate if what you say is deliberate), content, awkward phrases, redundancy, overall plot flow and time lining. Before all stories go into the zine, galleys will be sent to each author for approval (and proofing). Include your phone number when submitting in case I need to contact you in a hurry. These will not be given out. If you are writing under a pseudonym, that is fine, but please give me your legal name for mailing purposes. Again, these will not be given out.

Any questions? Contact me via email. Thanks for the interest in EYES ONLY. The zine cannot BE without you!!
