Taking Submissions: Ain’t No Sanity Clause

October 31, 2012

Deadline: October 31st 2012
Payment: 7.5% royalties after costs per story published in this anthology

Fringeworks is a small independent publisher that hopes to find clever ways of punching above its own weight.

We love to find new talent and to give writers the chance to get recognition for their work in the public domain. We are currently seeking electronic submissions for an anthology entitled ‘Ain’t no Sanity Clause’ to be released as an e-book 10th December 2012.

Submission deadline for this anthology is midnight on 31st October 2012.

As the title suggests, we are looking for stories between 2,000 to 5,000 words, which combine psychopaths and other lunatics with Christmas. Your psychopath/lunatic can be human or supernatural, and based on legend or fact in any period of history. Any genre is considered, though we suspect this anthology will appeal to writers of horror, comedy, SF and fantasy. We are looking for new and original twists on this theme with surprising elements. Be fun, be serious, but most of all be unique.

Submissions should be sent to [email protected] as word documents or rtf files

Your email subject header should read ‘SURNAME/SANITY CLAUSE/WORD COUNT (include word count)

All submissions should;

Be 2,000 to 5,000 words (max)

Be typed in Courier or Times New Roman 12

Be typed in line with Standard Manuscript Format. Details can be found at http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html

Include your full details (name/address/telephone number/email address)

Multiple submissions up to a maximum of two stories per author can be submitted. Please note that only electronic submissions will be considered.

We will write to you within approximately four weeks of the submission deadline to let you know if you have been successful.

We will be paying 7.5% royalties after costs per story published in this anthology.
