Hawks Barrow Press, LLC is now accepting submissions for our inaugural anthology: “Smoke In The Stars.”
This anthology will feature stories and poems centered around the concept of space based science fiction. Be it an adventure on a distant world or a crash course in space navigation, the stories of galactic adventure, and misadventure, are what this anthology is all about.
We are looking for short stories up to 6,000 words, flash fiction, or poetry in the Science Fiction/Science Fantasy genres. If you aren’t sure whether it fits, submit it anyway. The worst that happens is we let you know it doesn’t fit what we’re looking for! And we don’t bite!
1. You may submit multiple stories, but only one story per author will be accepted.
2. Please no simultaneous submissions. We want our stories to be first run.
3. Stories should be submitted to email@example.com in a .docx or .rtf format. The subject line of your email should be formatted as follows: LAST NAME_STORY TITLE_WORD COUNT.
4. Please submit stories in 12 point Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri. Include your name and address, along with the title of your story on the first page.
5. Accepted stories will receive editing and be given to the author for feedback prior to publication.
6. Authors will be paid using the proceeds of a crowdfunding campaign in which the final earnings (minus the cost of fulfilling the campaign rewards) will be split among the contributing authors based on word count contributed (only the story word counts will be counted).
7. Additionally, authors will receive a free digital and physical copy of the book.
If you have questions that need answered please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line SMOKE IN THE STARS_QUESTION.
Submissions will be accepted until JUNE 18, 2021 at 11:59 PM with the crowdfunding campaign to follow after final selections are made.
Thanks and good luck to you all!
