We will also be accepting graphic fiction (as an A5 sized PDF, maximum ten pages of story).
We also accept extracts from novels, following the same guidelines as short story submissions, however the extract has to be able to stand alone.
You may also submit non-fiction articles that have a clear relation to literature. These must follow the short story guidelines.
You must attach your submission as a .doc file to an e-mail (unless it is graphic fiction.)
You must include a 50 word biography (in the third person) as the body of the e-mail
Your e-mail must be titled 'Bad Language Submissions'
Please note we cannot read the same submission twice. If you have had an entry rejected from a previous anthology, please do not re-submit the same piece. We love to read new work!
Due to the large amount of submissions we cannot accept any that do not follow submissions guidelines.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org until further notice.
