CURRENTLY OPEN: NONE


WRITERS’ ANARCHY
CLOSED

Submissions Period: N/A
Release Date: N/A
Theme: TBA
Length: 2,000-8,000 words
Publication: Author retains all rights to work. WA is only granted an unconditional, non-exclusive copyright clearance of the creative work for the book and any related marketing efforts. WA will be available in eBook and print formats. Reprints are OKAY as long as author holds the rights.
Compensation: WA offers no compensation at this time.
Selection Process: This anthology is based on quality of work and submissions will be handled as per industry standards. Final works are reviewed by committee on a ROLLING basis. Acceptance decided by over 50% (6/11 people) vote of ‘yes’. Submissions should be in final draft* form. Committee is run double-blind, with an overseer (who does not vote) stripping author names from submissions for unbiased voting. Committee members are anonymous, and are not allowed to beta or edit a submission prior to acceptance.

*Any work that, as a story, is very good, but does not meet final edit standards will be rejected with a “please resubmit”. A “no” for Writers’ Anarchy is not always final, so keep trying!
