to Pezhead Monthly are always welcome. Sharing your appreciation
of Pez in literary or artistic format will, in some small way,
make the world a better place. (This has not been scientifically
proven, but I have a good hunch about it.) Please read on for
details about content requirements, submission acceptance, and
payment for submissions.

The submission must relate someway, somehow, to Pez.
that, please don't just submit a list of your Pez collection.
Instead, try to think "outside of the dispenser." Imagine
yourself as a Pez dispenser. Compose an ode to the famous design
of a Pez dispenser, or to the taste of Pez candy, or just to the
happiness you get from popping a Pez. Have a look at the PezheadMonthly.com
archive for some ideas. And
by all means, creativity is encouraged. You don't need to limit
yourself to the written word- photographs and artwork with a Pez
theme are welcomed as well.
And, as of
June 2008, your video submissions are also accepted!

submissions over 750 words may be split out among two or more
issues by the editor. If submitting a photo or artwork, I would
request that you do your best to keep each file to a maximum of

need to be Shakespeare or Rembrandt to have a submission accepted
by Pezhead Monthly. All you have to do is express your
appreciation of Pez in an artisitic, literary, poetic, or humorous
way. Simply put, if you take the time to submit a creative tribute
to Pez, your efforts will be given the recognition they deserve.
Also, please only submit your original work. Pezhead
Monthly will strive to verify that each submission is in fact
created by the person submitting it (or is at least deemed acceptable
for submission by the person who created it).
If a submission
needs some minor editorial tweaking (typos, etc.), the editor
will take care of this. If more substantial revising is needed,
the editor will be happy to work with you on this.
submissions to Pezhead Monthly become the shared property
of Pezhead Monthly and you. This means that you may send
and/or publish your submissions to anyone else you'd like, even

I'll be painfully
honest here: At this time, Pezhead Monthly makes no money.
Although the Store
section of this site offers PezheadMonthly.com stuff for purchase,
and provides for the opportunity to donate to the newsletter if
interested, any money that comes in at this point is dedicated
to offsetting costs of web hosting.
And so I regret
to inform that at this point I will be unable to pay for any submissions
accepted to Pezhead Monthly. I can, however, provide you
with a free paper copy of the most recent Pez Poetry Slam issue
(see the archives for all
past Pez Poetry Slams). In addition, your accepted submission
will also be featured online, and you can pass along the link
to your submission to all of your friends and family.
Monthly wants your submission!
you to share your creative talents by submitting to Pezhead
Monthly. You can submit via the form on the Contact
page, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
(e-mail is preferable for longer written pieces and for attachments
such as photos and artwork).
