Anthology Numbers

Greetings writers!

We've received a number of emails from excited writers asking, “When will the anthology come out?” 

The answer is: When we have accepted the number of stories we need (1,764), we’ll be able to publish the book.

Although we are seeking a lot of stories, we want high quality works. 

If you’d like to speed up the release date, help us reach our goal by spreading the word and getting your writer friends to submit a story.

We accept up to 4 stories from one writer. You are encouraged to send us stories to different categories, but you’ll need to use a different pen name per story. The same bio is fine. 

If we accepted your story, make sure that you replied to the acceptance email. About 200 acceptances are pending the writers' replies.
