To clarify for under-represented authors: Whether you ‘qualify’ as under-represented is something that you decide for yourself. We are not going to act as a gatekeeper on this, nor do we need you to justify your qualification. There is absolutely no requirement or request for you to tell us, in your cover letter or elsewhere, why you feel you qualify.

We look forward to reading your work.
