Hey, Fickle Readers! Do we have any writers among us out there? And do we have anyone who edits an online journal, or who self-publishes their creative work? (I’m looking at you, Ms. Blake!) If so, then you–yes, YOU–can submit material to the next Best of the Net anthology from Sundress Publications!
The submission guidelines are here. Basically, the rules are 1) all submissions have to have been published first online between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, 2) if you’re the editor of an online journal you can nominate up to six poems, two stories, and two works of creative nonfiction, 3) if you’re a self-published author you can only nominate two pieces regardless of genre (and you can’t submit your work that was published in a journal; the journal’s editor has to do that), and 4) you have to get your submission in by the end of today, September 30, 2014.
Sorry to pass along this tidbit of news at the very last minute, but I originally didn’t realize self-published authors could submit their own work. Also, I was too busy bemoaning the fact that no one had nominated any of my excellent, ground-breaking work from 2014. (Wait, did I even get anything published in 2014? Did I even submit anything anywhere? Oh, that’s right. I didn’t. Well, then, carry on.)
