Taking Submissions: Undeath And The Age Of Steam

June 1

Deadline: June 1st, 2017
Payment: Royalties and a contributor’s copy
Not horror, but with undeath involved you may be able to weave some elements in

We’re looking for Steampunk stories—specifically, mysteries that take place in a Steampunk setting. A mystery is the story of a crime and its solution. As for Steampunk, you can find a good, concise description at Steampunk.com. Supernatural elements are welcome.

Here are the particulars:

Length: Maximum 10,000 words.
Deadline: June 1, 2017
Submit to: editorjessfaraday at hotmail.com

Format: paperback and e-book
Payment: share of royalties plus author copies
Contract: we use a modified EPIC contract.

Additional Information:

A lot of Steampunk focuses on the European experience. Elm Books is dedicated to promoting diverse authors and stories. Priority will be given to stories that feature characters from traditionally underrepresented groups—main characters of color, female protagonists, differently-abled main characters, LGBTQ main characters, and so on. Also, priority will be given to stories set outside of Europe, especially those examining colonialism from a non-European perspective.

We will not print stories containing graphic sex or violence.

Sound like enough of a challenge? Get writing!
