Taking Submissions: Shifters

May 5, 2013

Deadline: May 5th 2013
Payment: 1 Contributor’s Copy

We are open to submissions for Shifters, a themed charity anthology, for POD paperback and eBook publication. It will benefit the American Humane Association’s Red Star Rescue Team, which provides disaster response services for pets and domestic animals. The release will coincide with the World Horror Convention in June.

We are looking for shapeshifter and were-creature stories of any type, for an adult audience. Horror stories with werewolves, shapeshifter erotica, weird western, science fiction, reimagined fairy tales… as long as it features a shapeshifter or were-beast.

Word Count: 2,000 to 10,000 words preferred, but flexible. We also need a small number of very short flash pieces, 250 words or less. In addition to being in the book, these may be printed on postcards as promotional pieces. We are also looking for submissions for cover art and art for the promo pieces.

Payment for stories, and for artwork: 1 print contributor’s copy of the anthology. All proceeds from sales of the anthology will be going to the charity.

Rights: We will be asking for First Electronic and First Print Rights (unless it’s a reprint). Please remember that you can only sell your various ”First” rights once, and that you will only be able to market your accepted story later as a reprint, once we have published it, which may limit where you can submit it to in the future, and how much you may be paid for it. Only you can make this business decision for yourself.

Deadline: May 5th, 2013.

Submit the full story to us at [email protected], with “Shifters” in the subject line. Include a little information about yourself as well.

Multiple submissions: Ok

Simultaneous submissions: Ok, just let us know.

Reprints: We prefer original stories for this anthology, but will consider reprints, especially if they have not appeared in multiple places, or are not easy to find elsewhere. If you’re submitting a reprint, please let us know when and where it previously appeared. We likely won’t make final decisions on specific reprints until the end of the submissions period.
