SUBMISSION PROCESS AND DEADLINES
1 March, 2019 is the deadline for all submissions regardless of genre. After an initial BLIND review by the genre teams, each submission will be sent back to its author with comments and a request to make changes. Authors must submit requested changes by the deadline of 4 April, 2019. The Editorial Team will embark on a second and final review to determine if each submission is publication ready. Authors must submit any final changes by the deadline of 30 April, 2019.
By submitting you agree to consider all editorial comments put forward by the editorial team and make changes/corrections to your submission by the required deadlines. The editorial team reserves the right to return submissions it deems not ready for publication or, where an author has submitted in multiple genres and in the event the anthology is over subscribed, select only one piece for publication.
Authors retain all rights and will earn no royalties. Copies of the anthology will be available for authors to purchase at cost, which will be determined upon completion of the project. The Editorial Team aims to have the manuscript ready for publication 1 June, 2019.
So, what are you waiting for? Send us your innovatively set, creatively styled, cleverly plotted, expertly voiced, and, most importantly, your polished work. We look forward to your submission!
