Harrogate Writers Collective
Anthology Submission Guidelines
PROJECT DATES: Summer 2023 for and Autumn 2023 launch
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31st May 2023.
As our first Harrogate Writers Collective Anthology, we want this to be the most open and welcoming reflection of Harrogate Writers.
We have the very open theme of New Work, so whatever you have that is new or in any other way fits the theme, you are welcome to submit it. The anthology is multi genre and mutlti-format, so we accept fiction, non-fiction, plays, screenplays, poems, drawings, illustrations or photos.
Each piece should be up to 7,000 words per piece in length; please do not send anything longer than this.
Multiple and simultaneous submissions
It’s fine to send us more than one story. In fact, we’d love to see two or three.
Please don’t send more than three (or four for poetry/verse).
Depending on how many pieces we get, we may not be able to publish all of your pieces in this anthology, so please order your pieces in preferential order.
Deadlines and when to submit
Our spring call for submissions is now open. The deadline is Wednesday 31st May, 2023.
We just ask for the right to keep the story in print as part of the anthology.
We don’t ask for more rights than we need to produce the anthology, nor do or place any limits on what you can do with your story.
Copyright always remains with the author.
If possible, please submit your short story in .docx or .doc or final draft format.
There is no submission fee for any story submitted.
Distribution & Sales
The plan is to print and sell the books digitally and hard copy, at a nominal recommended price.
Sales from the book will cover the costs to produce with surplus funds going to Children’s Book Project
