Call for Submissions: Anthology
Ashland Creek Press is currently accepting short story submissions for a book-length anthology focused on animals.
We’re looking for stories of how the lives of animals and humans intersect, particularly in regards to the conservation and protection of animals. We are not seeking stories about hunting, fishing, or eating animals—unless they are analogous to a good anti-war novel being all about war. Under these basic guidelines, however, we’re open to reading a wide range of short fiction with animal themes.
Stories should be from 2,500 to 7,500 words in length. Previously published stories are fine, as long as you have retained the rights to reprint your story in an anthology. Along with your story, please include with your submission a brief cover letter, including an author bio and acknowledgment(s) if the story has been previously published.
