Exilic Press is looking for short stories on the theme of exile. This can be taken literally but also metaphysically and figuratively. From being exiled from your lover’s heart, your home planet or your own agenda. Form (poetic, experimental, etc) and genre free. Surprise us!
Selected stories will be published in a collection of short stories (paperback & ebook). 50% of the profits made by the book will be distributed evenly among authors. Rest of the profit will be invested in Exilic Press.
We aim to include about ten authors. Everyone can send in up to two unpublished (not even online) stories. No simultaneous submissions, unless clearly communicated at time of submission. Preferred length: 500 to 5000 words. Selection will be done by editors of Exilic Press, based on the aims of Exilic Press.
There is no reading fee/hidden costs.
Deadline: April 28th, 2019. Decision will be communicated by June 1st. Publication in autumn 2019.
By submitting your story you give Exilic Press the sole and first publication rights for one year when the story is accepted.
