How to submit

  • Processs

    Other

  • Cover letter

    We ask for a bio of ~50-100 words as part of the submissions process. We don't require a cover letter, but there is space for one, should you wish to. You might tell us something about yourself, what drew you to this project, what you believe the work you're submitting will add to the project, etc.

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    For ease of reading for consideration, submissions should be sent in Times New Roman 12-pt font, double-spaced. We prefer Word docs or similar, but pdf and rtf are also acceptable.

  • Author's rights

    End of the World Publishing retains exclusive rights to the work for one year from publication. After that, we ask that we be credited as the location of first publication should you go on to publish the work elsewhere.

  • Additional info

    Our theme is intentionally broad to allow would-be contributors to rustle the dogies of their imaginations as freely as possible. A few ideas we have had, purely as examples, are: What would it be like if there had been dwarves around for the California gold rush? What animals elves or orcs might drive and what antics might ensue? How would a saloon fight go if some folks in the saloon were magic users? For that matter, what would magic look like/be used for and how would the general populace use it? Show us Sitting Bull with magic that controls water! Show us ghost riders chasing the Devil’s herd! Show us Billy the Kid with a wand! Or on a dragon! Or both! Show us Annie Oakley, Magic Missile Sharp-shooter! The possibilities are endless. Give us good stories and poems that people will want to read, with the many tropes and legends that the Wild West and Fantasy encompass as your building blocks. As long as you incorporate those elements, we’ll consider fantasy (obvs), horror, sci-fi, dystopian, (post-)apocalyptic, strange fiction, steampunk, alternate history, and speculative fiction.
