Call for Submissions

So I ask you:

  • Did you experience Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria or any other of the big weather events of 2017 or 2018?
  • Did you slog through more snow last winter than you’ve ever seen before?
  • Did you lose a house or a family heirloom to fire fueled by record-setting temperatures?
  • Can you imagine what the world will be like 50 years from now?

If you experienced these or any other of the myriad results of human-caused climate change, or if you are concerned and know something about the subject, we’d like to include your fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, cross-genre, comics, photography or art in our upcoming anthology. Deadline is 7/1/2018. Word limit is 2,000.

Here is information that may be important to you:

  • Copyright: We ask only for rights to format and publish in the anthology. All other copyrights are yours.
  • Reprints: If applicable copyrights allow, we will reprint. Let us know where your work was published originally.
  • Simultaneous submissions: Let us know if somebody else beats us to the punch.
  • Edits: Your work will be edited for correct spelling, punctuation and grammar.  No substantive edits will be made without your approval.
  • Formats: Print, e-Book and Kindle Unlimited
  • Charges, fees, etc.: None for submitting, none for any editing, none for publishing, none.
  • Pay: Gosh! We wish we could offer hundreds of dollars. Unfortunately, we aren’t being paid, either. We can offer you a free Kindle book–which you won’t even need if you have Kindle Unlimited. Perhaps if we sell a whole lot of books, we will be able to afford to share some of the proceeds. As the chief editor of this book, I can state that this is my hope.  But it may be more important to be included in a work that not only has literary merit but also just might do some good in the world.

To submit photography or other art to us, please email it to info@settingforth.pub. To submit fiction, creative nonfiction or poetry–any creative writing–please complete the form below.
