We are delighted to announce our debut anthology Stories About Penises was released 28 November 2019.  


19 Jan 2020

The theme for our next anthology is Cyber Lives. We are seeking poetry and short stories (fiction & nonfiction) from UK writers. We have extended the deadline for submissions to 29 February 2020.

This is wide open. Anything goes - poetry, memoir, erotica, literary fiction, sci fi, essays, etc - as long as it aligns with the theme. Our daily lives are saturated with the internet, impacting our minds and behavior. Miscommunications and mishaps. Lust and desire for fame and money. Those who want to be rock stars, those who will do anything to be loved and adored, porn stars come to mind, those seeking love online, Tinder or Grindr or otherwise, and those who do not want to be loved and adored online, those who would do anything to escape the internet, but cannot. This is rich and fertile ground, and surely there are countless other ways to approach this theme. We are thrilled about our next anthology and hope you are too.

  • Closing date for submissions - 29 February 2020.

  • Short stories (fiction & nonfiction) - 1000-5000 words.

  • Poetry, up to 5 pages.

  • Seeking UK writers, including international students, anyone currently living in the UK or born in the UK.

  • Unpublished work only please. We are not able to accept previously published work, print or online.

  • Standard Royalty Contract for successful submissions.
