We do roughly three anthologies a year. We do a monthly newsletter.
A typeface for all submissions…Either Times New Roman, Arial, or Ubuntu. Something easy to read. No really weird formatting please. at least 12 pt font.
Stories – The paid versions are limited in the slots, but we are looking for between 3k and 6k word count on the stories. The word count is not a fixed thing…if your story is 2880 words…send it. If your story is 6500-word count, send it. We will help you to get it where it needs to be. The unpaid anthologies have similar requirements without limitations.
Poetry – This is where we limit the amount. Sending in huge amounts of poetry makes it difficult for us to sort through the submissions. We ask that you limit it to 5 per entry. This gives us a reasonable ability to choose the best work that is sent to us. We do not limit form or style. We do ask that the poem be able to fit on a single page.
Art – Printing does usually end up with the pictures going to grayscale. Ebooks will have the picture in color. 300dpi is required for publication. We again ask that you limit yourself to 5 submissions of this variety to each anthology. We appreciate the talent in your work but it makes it harder on us to put together a showcase of indie talent.
Much of the newsletter is the same as the anthologies. The only real difference is that the newsletter goes out monthly. At the end of each year, we choose from the newsletter to release a yearly best-of anthology.
When you submit – Your submission should either be an attachment or a google docs link. It should come with a short bio written in 3rd person. Include a picture for the about the author area – either a picture of you or a logo or something similar. Make sure there is at least one link where you can be found in your bio.
