Moksha has been built from the ground up to streamline your editorial workflow. Moksha takes care of everything, from author submissions, slush reading, ratings and recommendations, forwarding, and communication with the author, all with just a few mouse clicks.
Moksha is a fully featured manuscript submissions system designed by editors for editors. Designed for simplicity, Moksha makes managing the slush pile easy. But with its extensive feature list, your organization can customize Moksha to match your workflow.
Moksha is currently in use by the following publications: Lightspeed Magazine, Nightmare Magazine, Strange Horizons, Tor.com Fiction, Fireside Fiction, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Apex Magazine, Far Fetched Fables, and many others.
Some of Moksha’s most powerful features include:
Easy Review & Commenting
With Moksha’s easy-to-use review and commenting system, slush readers can leave their opinions of a manuscript for the editor to review before responding. Every submission has its own history of comments and actions, so an editor can review before making her final decision.
Auto-forwarding & Notifications
New submissions can be automatically forwarded to an individual, and Moksha can notify any number of people when a new submission arrives. Additionally, when the status of a submission changes (e.g. to “recommended”) Moksha can automatically forward that submission to a particular individual.
Rating system & Auto-recommending
With Moksha, you can use an optional rating system to automatically determine if submissions are “recommended” or “not-recommended” based on a minimum rating threshold. Additionally, you can choose who to forward the submission to once it receives its new recommendation.
Powerful Permissions Control
Give your slush readers access only to the publications and submission types they need access to, while allowing admins to see all. With Moksha’s easy-to-use and powerful permissions’ system, you can control exactly what your readers and editors see.
Advanced Power Search
You can dive deep into your slush pile, searching by name, email, title, date range, status, publication, and a host of other fields. Never lose a submission again. Moksha keeps everything in a permanent archive.
You can limit the number of submissions by an individual, by submission type, by publication, by total number, and a host of other criteria, all designed to keep your submissions pile to a manageable level.
Send personalized rejection letters with one click. With Moksha, you can create an unlimited number of form letters, automatically inserting frequently used form fields like name, email, title, and publication into each letter. With one click you can send personalized rejections, acceptances, and confirmation emails, among many other types of communication.
And much more!
Moksha has countless features you can use, including: slush reader “nudging” if the queue grows too large, submission “aging” to flag submissions that have been in the queue too long, private submission comments, filename control, full editing capability for every submission and publication, and lots more.
