Call For Submissions: Re-Terrify

Image of an alien-looking Monster 


Pole to Pole Publishing is seeking short, re-print fiction for the Re-Terrify anthology to be published in late 2018.  Re-Terrify will join our previous submission calls (now closed) for Re-Launch and Re-Quest in the Re-Imagined Series of anthologies. Re-Terrify requires dark science fiction, fantasy or horror reprints on the theme of monsters which terrify. 

Payment:  

Payment is $10 per story, paid on acceptance  (contract must be signed), via PayPal only; plus, one electronic and one print copy of  the antho.  (Sorry:  If you do not have a PayPal account, please do not submit your work.)

Right Purchased:

– The non-exclusive right to publish the story to the new Pole to  Pole Publishing Patreon blog (for patron’s eyes only).
– The non-exclusive right to collect the stories into an anthology, published in 2018 and sold thereafter.

General:

Stories should be 3,000-5,000 words and meet  the central theme of the anthology. Reprints currently available on line  are not eligible. Preference is for stories that haven’t been published  in at least a year.  Older reprints will carry more weight than new  ones.

Author must possess the right to offer the story for submission.

Hard Sells:

Profane and vulgar language — because we market to both adult and YA  readers. If we are interested in your story, we may ask you to edit  profane and vulgar language as a condition of publication.

First Person and Present Tense. We’ve published both: when the  stories were very, very good. We want to let you know up front that  we’re going to reject this most of the time. It’s just not our  preference.

Excessive Gore and/or violence. Blood and guts are fine—as long as they’re part of the story and not the story itself.

Sex. See above about marketing to a wider audience.

What We Don’t Want:

No rape, torture, etc. of children. No animal abuse. No stories with  characters from a copyrighted world that belongs to someone else.

No Poetry.

Submission Procedures:

Submit stories through the Submittable. Authors may submit one story for each anthology.

Formatting:

All stories should be in standard manuscript form and in .doc or .docx only.

No tabs. Please format the document with a first line indent.

Curly quotes, please—no straight quotes.

If you’re not sure if your story is suitable, don’t query; just go ahead and submit and let our editors decide.

Deadline: August 30, 2018 or until filled. Be aware that all of  our anthologies have filled before the deadline, so please don’t wait  until the last minute to submit.
