Weasel Press is releasing a new Furry anthology called Typewriter Emergencies and it is currently calling for intense psychological dramas in which characters have to overcome some harsh realities. I’m looking for dark and existential fiction focusing around the theme of “These Things Shall Pass/It’s a mad world out there.” There’s a wealth of things that fit but some examples of what I’m looking for in this anthology would be Bullying, Sexuality, domestic violence, drug abuse, poverty/homelessness, anxiety. We’re looking for situations that would cause intense psychological strife. We are looking for stories featuring anthropomorphic animal characters (aka humanized animals) following the theme. Fiction not containing any of the elements we are asking for will not be reviewed.
I suppose you could say there’s a love affair between Weasel Press and the Bukowski’s or Hubert Selby Jr.’s of the world, and that’s essentially what I would like to see in this submission call; furry versions of heavy existential fiction. If you need examples of things to read, feel free to shoot me an email.
Ratings PG-R are accepted. Adult and Sexual themes are allowed, however excessive gore and sex is not. Pretty much, if it’s related or crucial to your story then it is fine. If it has nothing to do with your story then it’s probably not going to be accepted.
Authors accepted into Typewriter Emergencies will be paid a flat rate of $20 for their story and will receive a free copy of the anthology when it is released. Payments will be made through paypal (Weasel Press will pay the fees for using paypal, if any). If another method is needed, it will need to be discussed through email. Multiple submissions are accepted, however it is asked that you keep it under 3 submissions. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but the author is required to inform us if it has been accepted elsewhere.
This is the first “furry” anthology I’m doing. If things go well I hope to do another with a different theme.
