Submission Guidelines

As of July 2018, we pay $5 for winning contest stories and $10 for accepted anthology submissions. Subject to change with each anthology and contest.

Guidelines will vary depending on the current call for submissions, but there are a few things we will always require:

  • All submissions must be formatted with Shunn formatting.
  • All submissions must be sent via the submission form on the right.
    • If you do not have a Google account, contact us for submission options
  • All submissions must be edited to the best of your ability. We highly recommend getting at least one beta reader to help you proofread it before submission. If you need help finding a beta reader, try Writing Bad on Facebook.

If your story is hosted on a website, blog, or social media platform and you want to submit it, you need to remove it until you receive your acceptance/rejection email. If it has been accepted, it needs to remain unavailable, as the anthology will hold exclusive rights for the first six months.

Expect to wait anywhere between four to six weeks after the closing date for all notifications to be made.
