Cyber Smut Update
Many thanks for your short stories and poems for our Cyber Smut anthology. We are reviewing submissions and will announce results near the end of March.
The title for our next anthology, Cyber Lives, has transformed into Cyber Smut. To those who have already submitted under Cyber Lives, rest assured, your submissions will not be affected by this. The theme remains the same: we want to know how the internet has impacted your life. We are seeking poetry and short stories (fiction & nonfiction) from the UK and Ireland. Closing date for submissions is 29 February 2020, 11:59pm GMT.
This is wide open in terms of interpretation, and anything goes - poetry, memoir, erotica, literary fiction, sci fi, essays, etc - as long as it aligns with the theme. Things to consider: our daily lives are saturated with the internet, impacting our minds and behavior. Miscommunications and mishaps. Lust and desire for fame and money. Hilarity and tragedy with Tinder or Grindr. This is rich and fertile ground, and surely there are countless ways to approach this theme. We are thrilled about our next anthology and hope you are too.
Closing date - 29 February 2020, 11:59pm GMT.
Short stories (fiction & nonfiction) - 1000-5000 words.
Poetry, up to 5 pages.
Writers from the UK & Ireland - anyone living or born in the UK or Ireland.
Unpublished work only please. We are not able to accept previously published work, print or online.
Standard Royalty Contract for successful submissions.
