Due by August 1, 2022

Specific Genre  

Short stories/Poetry/Art/Haiku/Photography.

Currently, there are 9 story slots and 10 slots for art/poetry, etc. We may if we receive enough quality submissions decide to open up more volumes to accommodate more openings. 

This is a paid anthology. You will if you get in receive a portion of the royalties…however you will be expected to assist in the marketing of the anthology.

Editing is provided. If your story is in draft form it is still acceptable, however, it must be readable. Gore is acceptable, however, do keep it reasonable, no one wants to read gore for gore’s sake.  We do not accept erotica at this time.  We are here to showcase good indie authors and are more than willing to help those just getting started.

We will accept stories that have been published before,  as long as you retain publishing rights. 

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

To the person in our contact

Thank you. I understand that you feel like we need an editor here on this site. You pointed this out with a snide aspiration of being better than us. I am sorry that you feel like we need you to judge us. And then you sent an email with it of drop spam here…I believe that your message would have more impact if you adjusted your tone and attitude. Thank you for the input, I will be taking it with the realization that it was sent out by someone who has need of help. I hope you find that help.
