4 Anthologies Accepting Submissions

Below are a number of publications with calls for submissions. Only the basics are listed here, not full reviews, but we try to give enough information to pique your interest. One of the reasons we started this new series is because placing your work in anthologies are a great way to get your foot in the door, in terms of experience but also in terms of getting to know a potential publisher for a manuscript.

This is a new column and at the moment we are just trying it out. So please send us your feedback about it. If you are a publisher with a call for submissions, please email us as well. The best address to reach us at is support@authorspublish.com
