  1. Regarding: The Readers’ Pen
    Does the contributor has to be a US citizen?
    I am interested but I am not a US citizen and do not live in USA.
    If submission is accepted, do you take PayPal?

    • Cuppy,

      I don’t think you have to be a US citizen to submit something. Usually, they will say so and they don’t mention it at all.
