Taking Submissions: Revolutions!

May 1, 2015


Deadline: May 1st 2015
Payment: £10

Submission details as follows . . .

1. Submissions window. We are now open to submissions and we will remain open until 1st May 2015.

2. Eligibility. Anyone over 18 can submit (group members or non-group members alike). Submitted pieces must not have been workshopped in the group prior to submission.

3. Theme. All submissions must be in a speculative genre (science fiction, fantasy, horror, dystopian fiction, slipstream) and must have some link to the area that isGreater Manchester, England. The final decision about whether a story qualifies for submission will remain at the editors’ discretion.

4. Payment. £10 payment per story accepted. Payment via PayPal.

5. Rights. For published pieces we take First Print rights and Electronic Publishing Rights for 12 months. We reserve the right to archive your story online indefinitely. Please bear in mind that most publications will not publish pieces that have been published in print, eBook, or on the web, so for all intents and purposes after your work is published by us it can only be marketed as a reprint, which severely limits the number of markets that will accept it, and drastically reduces the pay rate it can receive. It is up to you, the author, to decide if this is what you want to do.

6. Word count. Short stories of between 1,500 to 6,000 words. Please send only one story until you receive a response. You may then submit another story, and so on. Sorry but no poetry or non-fiction.

7. Formatting. Word DOC files only. Double line spacing with the author’s name, page number and story title at the top of every page.

8. Distribution. The anthology will be made available in e-book format via Smashwords and print copies will be available as POD. Tentative publication date is the second half of 2015.

Editors: Eric Steele, Craig Pay, Graeme Shimmin
