Submissions are privately open for 100 x 100: Volume 1 (working title) from Manawaker Studio and Creative Questers.
100 x 100 is an anthology (possibly annual) focused on 100 word stories which were originally part of the Creative Questers 100 Word Project (100WP).
This is a private submission process. It is only open to members of the 100WP.
The book will be curated and edited by Manawaker Studio in conjunction with Creative Questers. It will be published by Manawaker Studio as part of their regular line of anthologies.
We are looking to fill a small book with 100 of the stories written for the 100WP. The only restrictions are that the stories are at (or very close to) 100 words long, and that they were previously submitted to the 100WP for soft-publication on the passworded 100WP site in 2022. No new stories, please. There are no genre requirements or content guidelines.
Stories which have been published since the original submission to the 100WP are acceptable if the author still retains the print rights.
If your work is accepted, you will grant Manawaker Studio the right to publish the work non-exclusively (we will ask nicely for exclusivity for one year, unless it’s already too late). The work or parts of it may also be used for promotional purposes in print or online.
Original creators will retain all other copyrights.
Simultaneous submissions are okay, just make sure you tell us if your work gets published elsewhere. Multiple submissions are expected. You may submit as many of the qualifying stories as you like.
If you’d like to see how it all will fit together, take a look at Manawaker’s most recent previous anthology here.
Compensation for inclusion in the anthology will be an electronic copy of the final book and a token payment of 1$/story
A sample contract sits here if you are interested.
Contributors may also order the physical book at a discounted price, so that they may resell it at signings, readings, and shows without having to bump the cost above the MSRP.
All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘100 x 100 Submission’ and your last name in the subject line. If you wish, include a brief cover letter and a third person bio (65 words max) in the body of the e-mail. If you’d like a URL for an online portfolio or blog included with your bio, give that as well.
Please include the stories, with a reminder of which prompt each came from. We prefer text pasted in the email, but will also accept files, as long as they open in MS Office
Response times will vary, ranging from a couple weeks after the deadline to two months.
The deadline for submissions is 31 Jan 2023.
The plan is to publish the anthology in Summer 2023.
Any questions about the project or these guidelines (or any queries after submissions) should be sent to email@example.com
