Arrow Anthology Now Accepting Submissions

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share some info on an anthology I'll be helping to edit for Read Furiously. They've just posted the submission guidelines.

Read Furiously is currently accepting submissions for their first New Jersey-based anthology, titled “The World Takes:” Life in the Garden State. This anthology will explore the many beautiful, diverse, and complex relationships between New Jersey and its writers. You do not need to be a resident of New Jersey, but your piece needs to express a clear understanding of the geography, culture, social scripts, and/or history of the state. We are asking authors to dig deep and to create compelling narratives that reflect what New Jersey means to them.

We are accepting:
→ Short stories with a length of 1,000 to 4,000 words
→ Creative nonfiction pieces with a length of 1,000 to 4,000 words
→ Comics in black and white between 5-15 pages
→ Photographic or illustrated stories in black and white between 3-8 pages
→ Poetry of 3-5 poems

Read Furiously will also donate 20% of our net proceeds to Bridge of Books Foundation, a nonprofit, volunteer-led organization. As stated on their website - their mission is to “provide an ongoing source of books to underserved children throughout New Jersey in order to support the development of literacy skills and to encourage a love of reading.” We at Read Furiously would like to recognize their hard work and use our net proceeds to help support them in their mission to change the world through reading.

Policies to know before submitting:
Multiple Authors - If you wish to submit a piece that contains multiple authors or creators, please have one point of contact.
Reprints or simultaneous submissions will not be accepted at this time.
Factors for Acceptance - All submissions should include completed works, fully edited and as close to final publication as possible. We ask that all authors present themselves with professionalism and respect towards their writing subjects. If accepted for this anthology, we will move through the editorial process of checking for proper organization, copyediting, and proofreading. However, we are not responsible for “almost” completed works or works that need an extensive editorial oversight.
Payment and Compensation - Notices of acceptance will be sent to those pieces selected to be included in the anthology, along with a schedule of payment and royalty scheme for creators determined by their respective page percentage to the anthology. Every creator involved will receive a comp copy of the printed anthology, with the option to buy additional copies at cost.
Rights to Story - Read Furiously is only interested in previously unpublished works. The author(s) must be the sole rights owner for the work they send. If accepted in this anthology, Read Furiously retains first publication rights and authors are able to reprint the story in other publications one year after the release date of this anthology. Authors retain full creative rights to their stories. Read Furiously is not responsible for any stories whose ownership has been misrepresented, or the consequences therein.
Response time - There will be an automatic response for all submissions upon receipt. We will hold a two month reading period after the submission window has closed, and all contributors whose work has been accepted will be contacted at that time. Please do not contact Read Furiously to check on the status of your submission.
What We Don’t Want - Any stories that feature gratuitous violence and/or violence towards women or anything deemed racist, homophobic, or disrespectful will not be accepted. Also, any submissions that are not proofread or do not follow the above submission guidelines will not be accepted.

Submission window will open July 1, 2018 and will close November 30, 2018. Please send submissions to anthology@readfuriously.com with the subject line “New Jersey Anthology 2019.”

→ Poems, creative nonfiction, and short stories should be sent as a Word Document.

→ Comic and photographic/illustrated works should be sent as a single low res PDF file (high resolution files will be requested from those stories that are accepted). Please keep in mind that the printed book will be 5x8 inches, so all artwork must adhere to these dimensions.

Any additional questions please contact info@readfuriously.com
