Welcome to Circle City Publishing.
An Absurd Apocalypse: Stories from the Lame Side of the End of the World is now open for submissions.
We’re seeking short stories no longer than 8,000 words. Stories should center around the lamest world-ending events imaginable, and/or the effects those events have on normal, everyday life within the apocalypse. But don’t be confused; this collection will be far from boring. We’re looking for the quirky, humorous, outlandish, but relatable side of the apocalypse.
The price of the book will be set to cover the minimum printing costs to facilitate a low price point and encourage readers to explore the content. Due to this, there will be no profit from sales, so this will be an unpaid project. Successful submissions will receive a copy of the ebook.
Submissions close on November 1st, 2020. Two submission maximum per author.
Send your double spaced, indented MS Word or Google Docs document to email@example.com. Please include your name as you’d like it to be published, the title of the story, and the word count. The subject line of the email should also include your name and title. All genres will be considered except for romance or erotica.
Along with that, please also include an author bio along with social media handles, web site address, and/or an email address where readers can reach you.
Reprints or simultaneous submissions will be considered.
