Page Turner Magazine’s submissions department strives to maintain the integrity of the submissions process. To that end, we ask that all current staff members, board members, and volunteer staff refrain from submitting content to the magazine during their period of appointment (to consist of the period leading up the publication of a given issue). All former staff members, board members, and volunteer staff are welcome to submit content after the expiry of their appointment, to be considered for subsequent issues. 

The short version? Page Turner Magazine wants to keep a level table, which means you’re free to submit content for an issue you haven’t worked on.
