Tough publishes four or five times per month on Mondays, for which we pay a flat rate of $25 per story or book review--we don't take reprints, poems, or essays--in exchange for first world serial rights to publish the submission on the website and as of 2018, in a periodically produced print issue, the first of which is due in July 2018. Payment comes via check mailed on publication or via Paypal by special arrangement. Query email@example.com for details or to pitch reviews.
As of 8/26/18 submissions should be formatted in .rtf and sent using our submission manager.
MOBI or PDF book review copies--our preferred methods--can be sent to the same address. Otherwise, review copies can be sent to: Tough, 119 Bradstreet Avenue, Revere, MA 02151.
