This page has details of all the current submissions calls for specific upcoming Atlantean projects, as well as outlines for future plans whose development may be directed by your feedback and suggestions.
We are also always happy to receive general submissions and are especially in need of artwork. Our relevant guidelines and FAQs are available on this wiki — do please read them before sending.
Any queries are welcome at the addresses at the bottom of the page.

Please note that payment is one copy for contributions to booklets and anthologies. Acceptances and rejections will be sent out after the deadline.

Poetry and Fiction Wanted Now!

See below for open submissions.

Line Length

There are no hard line lengths for poetry.

Word Count

For booklets open to poetry and fiction, prose should be no more than 4000 words and preferably under 2000. For prose booklets, prose should be no more than 5000 words and preferably between 1000 and 3000 words.

Poetry booklets

Humorous and Nonsense Verse

Funny, silly, surreal and nonsense verse of all sorts.

Deadline: April 2019

Open to poems on any theme that fit in these broad categories.

Horror Poems for Hallowe'en (2019)

Dark, scary or comic horror poems for our Hallowe'en booklet. Poems don't have to reference Hallowe'en.

Deadline: End September 2019

Deadline: End of September 2019

The Dark Tower VII

We are looking for poems that deal with the theme of the Dark Tower in some manner. Very short fiction may also be considered.

Deadline: To be confirmed

Franco-Prussian War Anthology

2020 will be the 150th anniversary of the Franco-Prussian War and the beginning of the Siege of Paris. To celebrate, we are looking for poems set in the run-up to, during or in the aftermath of the war, siege and Paris Commune. Stories may be historical adventure or romance or any genre as long as they involve the war, siege or Commune: remember the Siege featured in Robert W. Chambers' The King In Yellow, while the Commune provided a little of the background to The Phantom of the Opera. Time travel or bookends set later are acceptable as long as the bulk of the poem takes place in the period. Events may deviate from the established history, both alternate history 'what ifs' and steampunk reinterpretations, but should remain fairly close to what happened, at least initially, in order to fit in.

Poems may be of any length.

The poems may appear in the same collection as the stories (see below) or may appear in a separate booklet.

Deadline: End March 2019.

Anthologies / Booklets

We have plans for the following anthologies — please note that in some cases the guidelines are still vague (we are happy to receive feedback) and may change. All titles and formats are tentative.

Pulp Adventures

Two-fisted tales, jungle adventures, tomb raiders and other stories of adventure with a pulp flair.

Deadline: Till full.

Lovecraftian Fiction

Fiction inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos and other stories of HP Lovecraft. Any length and style of poem welcome and all interpretations considered.

Deadline: Till full

Horror Fiction

Scary stories and horrific encounters.

Deadline: Till full.

Clark Ashton Smith-Inspired Anthology

We are currently considering putting together an anthology inspired by either Smith's Tsathoggua or Zothique (or possibly one for each, if there is interest). Please let us know if you would be interested in submitting to or purchasing such an anthology. Any length considered.

Deadline: Currently on hold so we don't clash with the Spectre Press anthology.

Buxton University Press Imprint

This new imprint of fictional 'non-fiction' booklets is open to queries. Visit the imprint's page for more information.

Ebooks

Due to the changes in taxation affecting ebooks, we are not currently open to ebook submissions.

Our 'step-sister' press Tigershark Publishing may be open to ebook ideas at some point - keep an eye on their website.

Artwork

We are always looking for artwork for covers and fillers for many of our publications (Monomyth, Bard, Garbaj, our anthologies, various booklets and broadsides). We are also keen to hear from artists interested in illustrating fiction and poetry. Payment is, as with written contributions, a complimentary copy of the publication your work appears in; we are also happy to advertise your website or other projects with your work.
