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.

See the Buxton University Press page for details of submitting to that imprint.

Please be aware that we are closed to submissions each July and August and each December and January (excepting projects that close in those months).
Submissions to The Supplement, queries for solo-author projects, letters of comment, and orders are still accepted as usual during this time.

Poetry booklets

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.

Infernal Stars

A further collection of poetry inspired by the works and worlds of Clark Ashton Smith.

Great War Volume IV

A sequel to Great War: 1914-2014. Poetry and fiction are sought for this collection. They may be straight or genre takes on the war, preferably focusing on the action around 1917.

Deadline: End of September 2017.

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.

We are seeking poetry to 20 lines and jokes/prose humour to around 100 words or so. Reprints are acceptable.

Issue number thirteen: lucky for some...? Yes, the theme for the next instalment of our occasional, web-based poetry/flash fiction micro-'zine will be on Luck — submissions of poetry and very short vignette-length prose are welcomed now on the subject of either good or bad (or indeed indifferent) fortune.

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.
