Submitting to A Rush of Wings

•February 13, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Soylent Publishing is pleased to announce a call for submissions for a new science-fiction/fantasy/horror print anthology called A Rush of Wings. The tone of the stories should be on the dark side and must involve a bird or birds as a main character or central theme. A fractured fairytale, legend, or myth is appealing. Look for a “different” bird to write about rather than the over-used species. Stories should be 3,000-10,000 words (you can query for longer) and never before published. Deadline is March 15, 2011.

The manuscript formatting guidelines are as follow:

· Submit work as Word documents with .doc file extensions. Make sure your last name and story title are in the file name (for example: Jones-StoryTitle.doc).

· Use Times New Roman, 12 point font.

· Documents should be double spaced only. Indicate new paragraphs with an indent. Indicate section breaks using three centered asterisks.

· Title page should include your name, pen name, address, email address, and phone number. Also include your website address, if applicable.

Submissions must be sent as email attachments in .rtf or .doc format to: Include a brief bio in the body of your email. Publication date is May 25, 2011. We pay one book copy plus shared royalty.

Please note: We’re not opposed to some violence or sexual content if the story requires it, but we are not looking for splatterfest or porno for this antho. Gratuitous violence or sex aimed at children or animals will result in a rejection.
