Word Branch Publishing 2016 Science Fiction Contest


Word Branch Publishing’s 2016 Science Fiction Short Story Contest

Word Branch Publishing is happy to announce that we are now accepting short story submissions for the 2016 anthology.  This will be our third year that we will open this opportunity to sci-fi writers across the globe (and beyond!) to raise money for a literacy charity to be chosen before publication.  All writers of chosen short stories will receive a copy of the 2016 anthology, a substantial discount for additional copies, and inclusion in advertising and press releases for the anthology. There is no charge for submission, but we do have a few guidelines:

    • We will accept only one submission per author regardless of pen names.
    • All chosen writers must sign an agreement for temporary copyrights.
    • All chosen writers must agree to work with and respond to the volunteer editors.
    • No short story submission can be longer than 12,000 words.
    • All chosen writers will submit a photo of themselves and a bio of no more than 300 words.
  • Writers must have full world rights to their submissions, and the stories must not have been previously published. 

Deadline for Submissions is Midnight, 31 August 2015–Don’t Wait!
