Submit to our monthly SPILL IT! column. An opinion column written by Vine Leaves Press authors, staff and other contributors. Sent to your inbox monthly. Designed to spark debate and conversation. Caution: Some controversial content.

The purpose of SPILL IT! is to evoke debate/opinions, and therefore each article is titled with a direct question to readers.

If you contribute to the column, we will pay $30 USD per article of 500-1000 words, and include direct links to your personal website and any titles you wish to gain exposure for. Our SPILL IT list currently has around 1800 active subscribers, and the columns are also posted on our Facebook Page and Twitter feed.

TIP: Don't be afraid to be controversial.

Please note that we do not want any articles that are about your own experience with writing. Readers who do not write are not going to have any interest in this. So please only send us ideas that would interest people who have never written (and don't wish to) in their lives.

Also, please only send us ideas that spark a solid debate. We want to trigger conversation.
