Sanguine Press is currently open for submissions to our next anthology, Betrayal & Redemption
What do we risk in betraying those closest to us? What path is there to reconciliation if trust is broken? And what feeling is more satisfying than a double-cross richly deserved?
Your story must feature a predominantly POC cast to be considered. In addition, we are particularly interested in submissions from WOC (women of color) and other marginalized voices.Genres:
Sci-fi, Fantasy, or Horror (no poetry, please)
For this anthology, we’re looking for original, short fiction up to 8,000 words. While we’ll read a piece that’s slightly longer, we will absolutely not consider any story over 10,000 words. Your story must be complete within the stated word count – no serials or other multi-part pieces.
No multiple submissions:
Please only send us one story at a time, and wait for a response before sending another. We’re excited to get to read your work, but as a two-person team we have to do all we can to give as many authors as possible a fair chance to be read.
No simultaneous submissions:
If you decide to submit to another publisher, please send us a note and withdraw your submission here, first. We ask this only because of time constraints, and this policy may change in the future when our staff expands.
No previously-published works:
We’re thrilled to have published authors submit their work for consideration! But please, no work that has already been published elsewhere.
We solemnly swear we will respond to you whether your work is accepted or not, but please give us at least 2 (two) months to read and get back to you
. If you haven’t heard from us by then, by all means, send us a note to see what’s up. We know that’s a long time to wait, and we thank you for being so patient with us as we work to get faster and better at this!
