The feline anthology sounds great, and I'm interested in submitting a story. I'm tied up on a project at the moment, so I'd like to know: what's the deadline?

David Sklar said...

Is there a publisher? Or, if it's a self-publication, may I ask about your plan for getting word out about this anthology?

And I presume you pay poetry at the same 1c/word you quote for fiction?

Anonymous said...

Seconding the questions asked here--self-pubbed or publisher? Deadline? Thanks!

Mari Mitchell said...

We are starting a small e-publishing house.

How we plan on advertising the anthologies is as follows:

Through our e-zine,
and submitting copies for reviews on other zines.
We will of course ask our contributors to do the same.
If anyone has any other ideas, I am open to ideas.

Mari Mitchell said...

We will be on:

Sony's PRS line of e-book readers, Google's Book Search mobile edition,
and whatever else is out there.

Deadline posted.

Mari Mitchell said...

Dear Manuel,

I hope to read you soon.


Manuel Royal said...

Thanks, Mari! Sorry, still don't see a deadline mentioned.

Mari Mitchell said...

That's because you are quicker than me. Look again. I had to get in contact with my co-editor to make sure the dates were right.

Manuel Royal said...

Thanks, Mari; I should be able to get something in.

Toni V.S. said...

Sorry. I must be visually-impaired. I've looked through the comments and the guidelines and see no deadline listed. Where?

Manuel Royal said...

September 25, Toni.

Toni V.S. said...

Thank you. A couple of other other question: It says a space between paragraphs. Is it single spacing then rather than double for the paragraphs themselves? Also, do you want any info about previous publishing credits?

Teresa Judd said...

I would like more information regarding the coffee/chocolate beans anthology. Is there payment?
How does one submit? Thanks.

Mari Mitchell said...

Yes, all the anthologies have the same rate of pay.

Mari Mitchell said...

Submit stories, poems or art to:

Place in subject line: SUBMISSION and which anthology you are submitting to.

Place it in the body of the email or as an attachment.

Mari Mitchell said...

A double space between each paragraph makes it easier to read.

You can list your publishing credits in the body of the email as part of your bio if you like.

What I really care about is the story, poem or art itself.

Thanks for all the questions!

Kate said...

How will I know if you have received my submission? How long should I wait if I haven't heard back?

Mari Mitchell said...

Dear Kate, If it has been over a week, please send it again. I'll read today and let you know.

Alexis said...

Just to clarify -- this is not a print publication, correct? It's an e-anthology only?

I'll be sending my submission in any day now. :)

Mari Mitchell said...

I would love to see it in print. But cost wise, epublication is the only way to go. If it goes really well, or there is a request, I am sure we can print it. At least I want one in paper.

Alexis said...

This is a very big if, but IF my story were to be accepted, I would definitely be interested in paying for a printed copy. :)

Hello, is this closed to submissions? I ask because I came here from a site that still lists it as actively looking...

No we're open. Send us what you got!
