We're publishing an anthology of the best vegan-friendly science fiction and fantasy of 2018.


What 'vegan' means here:

Formal requirements:

  • Vegan - Stories must be entirely vegan, and they must have been vegan when originally published. They don't have to be about vegans or veganism.
  • Length - 1,000 - 8,000 words
  • Venue - We're restricting eligibility to stories originally published in venues that paid $.01/word or more.
  • Reprints only - we're only looking for stories that were published elsewhere in the last year.
  • Original form - The stories must be exactly as originally published, except for correction of typographic errors and similar minor corrections. Again, we don't want stories that have been 'veganized' for this anthology.

Format

Follow the industry standard format defined by William Shunn. He has templates available, or you can use ours. We prefer a proportional, serif font like Cambria or Caladea. Use italics for emphasis, not underlining. Use smart/curly quotes. Use em dashes, not double hyphens.

Your story should be in DOC or DOCX format.

Pay

  • We pay $.01/word for non-exclusive electronic and print rights.
  • Payment is by PayPal only.

Timing

You're free to submit your story any time after it's published. However, note that we won't be making any final decisions until early spring.


Please submit no more than two stories.
