Taking Submissions: Alternate History Australia collection

Deadline: June 30th, 2020
Payment: Royalties
Theme: Alternate history set in Australia

Australia: the youngest continent in terms of recorded history, the smallest in population unless one counts Antarctica, yet still packed full of What If? possibilities. From Aboriginal civilisation to Gallipoli, from Cook and La Pérouse to Maintain Your Rage, the Land Down Under is begging to be the subject of more alternate history tales.

Now’s your chance to write one.

This anthology will be edited by none other than @Jared Kavanagh, author of the greatly ambitious and justly popular Australian timeline Lands of Red and Gold (whose first volume was recently published by SLP). His submission guidelines are listed below.

– Alternate history set in (or mostly in) Australia, or otherwise which has a very strong link to Australia.
– Aiming for around 10-12 stories with a total length of 60-70,000 words
– Average story length should be 3000-8000 words, but flexible
– Focus is on realism rather than supernatural aspects, but contact me if unsure
– Closing date for submissions is 30 June 2020.

If you’re interested in submitting an entry, first contact Jared Kavanagh at [email protected] to discuss.

Will consider all entries, but lodging a submission does not guarantee inclusion in the final anthology.

Please make sure you use the email address [email protected] to submit stories or make queries (rather than PMs or social media messages), as we want to limit the number of avenues of discussion to make sure no-one is overlooked by accident.

Come on over and give AH writing a go, we’ll throw another shrimp on the barbie for you.
