Submissions

Join us.

Here you'll find information on our current submissions windows - this page is always being updated so keep an eye out for future anthologies. We're always looking for fresh sacrifices.

IMPORTANT: Unless stated otherwise (for example in some of our charity anthologies), all accepted authors will receive a £15 flat fee and a free digital copy of the anthology. We hope to be able to offer more in the near future.

 

Submission Guidelines

Please refer to individual submissions calls for guidelines on theme, length, and where to send your work, etc. as these can vary from book to book.

In general, please follow these guidelines. Any submissions not following these guidelines may, unfortunately, be rejected.

1. Email your submission to the email address that corresponds to the submissions call you are applying for. For example, email any "Pulp Harvest" submissions to bloodritesharvest@gmail.com. Please include your name and the title of your submission in the subject header.

2. Please make sure your work is double-spaced and in a 12pt font. Please DO NOT use the "tab" or "space" key to indent your paragraphs - instead, use the ruler at the top of the page. 

3. Make sure you're happy with the piece you're submitting. Most of our submissions windows are fairly wide, and we're always happy to take into consideration edits at a later stage, but we want you to be as confident in the work you're submitting as you can be. 

4. You will notice that the email address for each of the upcoming submissions windows is open, and accessible from this page - please do not send us your submission until the window opens, as it may not be considered. Thank you!

If you have any questions, please email bloodritespublishing@gmail.com. Good luck!

We're looking for stories between 1,000-7,000 words.

Please let us know in your email who you are and why this anthology - focused on highlighting the work of queer and LGBTQ+ authors - is important to you.
