SPECIAL READING PERIOD FOR HYBRID-GENRE ANTHOLOGY PROPOSALS
Rose Metal Press announces a special reading period for pitches for creative, innovative, hybrid-focused anthologies, craft guides, or other types of multi-author projects. This reading period will run from October 15 to November 15, 2012, and have no reading fee. Please review our catalog and website to ensure that your proposal fits with our mission and focuses on hybrid work of some kind. Your proposal should be a full professional pitch including a description of the project, a list of potential contributors, your bio and qualifications to edit the book, the potential market for the book, and comparative titles already published. During the reading period, please email your pitch as a Word document or PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ANNUAL SHORT SHORT CHAPBOOK CONTEST
Our Seventh Annual Short Short Chapbook Contest submission period begins November 1 and ends December 1, 2012. Our 2012 judge will be Deb Olin Unferth. The winner will have his/her chapbook published in summer 2013, with an introduction by the contest judge. During the submission period, please submit your 25–40 page double-spaced manuscript of short short stories (fiction or nonfiction) each under 1000 words to us through our Submittable page with a $10 reading fee. Individual pieces in your manuscript may have appeared in journals, both in print and online, as long as the entire collection itself is unpublished. Please do not send or email unsolicited manuscripts to the Press outside of the specified reading periods.
