Submissions are closed for the 2018 annual anthology and we are busy reading them all. Publication date is anticipated to be March 15, 2018. We will be accepting submissions for single-author echapbook collections again in May and June, 2018.
Specific guidelines for the 2018 FICTION collections will be posted by April 15, 2018.
No genre fiction (horror, fantasy, science fiction), please, unless a story is good enough to transcend genre.
At least one-fourth of any collection should be previously unpublished.
Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but only one submission per author. Please notify Wordrunner eChapbooks if your collection, or any part of it, is accepted elsewhere.
Submit ONE FILE (Word doc, RTF, ODT or WordPerfect), which includes a title for the collection and a list of contents, followed by the essays. (Please do not send docx files, thank you!)
In the cover letter, indicate which, if any pieces, were previously published and where.
Please do NOT include identifying information anywhere in the manuscript, as all readings will be blind.
Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but only one submission per author. Please notify Wordrunner e Chapbooks if your work is accepted elsewhere. We prefer that you withdraw the submission, if need be, from your Submittable account.
Payment: $100 for collections, $5 to $25 for poems, stories and essays published in the annual anthology.
Submission fee for collections will be $6 in 2018.
All rights revert to authors.
Note: By submitting to Wordrunner eChapbooks, you are also signing up for the quarterly emailed announcement of newly published echapbooks. We will never give out your e-mail to anyone else. You can always opt out of the mailing.
