She says:

“Submit a story that I haven’t already read before – and that is saying a lot because I am a voracious reader. Take huge risks with your story, and make sure when it is all said and done, you left it all on the page. I will be looking for multi-dimensional characters, vivid settings, dialogue that reveals something about the plot, the character or preferably both. Stories that are character-driven are my favorite, but if you can write a plot that screams originality, consider me hooked.”
