What is your favorite kind of submission to HFR?

Is “a really great one” not specific enough? Gosh, I don’t know. That’s the thing. We’re waiting for it, every second. If I could describe it already, it wouldn’t be great. Also, we love writers who haven’t been published much (or at all). Almost everything we publish is unsolicited, and nothing is more exciting than finding a voice you haven’t heard before. And then writing to the writer to tell them how great they are.
