You are paying the submission fee of $5.00 here, to initiate the process of submitting a Novelette for consideration in the next Santa Barbara Literary Journal. Because other submission platforms (We won't name names) have become more expensive for journals, submission fees have been on the rise. We aim to keep our fee low by processing it here in our webstore. As a big thank you for supporting the literary journal and sending your work, you will receive a PDF of our most recent journal. This will give you an opportunity to read through the journal and see what kind of work we print. 

Once we receive payment of your submission fee, you will be able to download the PDF of the most recent journal and you will receive an email from us inviting you to submit your work. Thanks so much for supporting Lit Jo, and we look forard to considering your work.
