NewCon Press - Open Submissions (close 10 June)
« on: May 18, 2013, 07:45:00 PM »
Acclaimed small press NewCon Press are doing open submissions for the first time ever... it is science fiction, not fantasy, but Ian Whates is a fantastic editor and this should be a great anthology:

NewCon Press are proud to announce our first ever ‘open submission’ anthology:  Looking Landwards.

The book is being produced in collaboration with the Institution of Agricultural Engineers, which celebrates its 75th Anniversary this year.  To commemorate this event, we are looking for original science fiction stories that speculate on what the future might hold for agricultural engineering, farming and food production over the next century.
Ideally stories should be of 4,500 words or less, though this limit is flexible.  Payment of 1p a word (or equivalent) up to a limit of £45.00 will be made for successful submissions.

The book will be published towards the end of 2013.

Stories should be presented in standard manuscript format, with italics used for italicised words (not underlining), and double inverted commas for speech.  Please submit your story as an attachment (either doc or rtf) to the following email address:  flashfic@newconpress.co.uk

Submissions close at midnight on June 10th 2013.
