Submissions Needed! Wolf Warriors V: Wolves Across Time

Posted on

Thurston Howl Publications is once again working with the National Wolfwatcher Coalition to make another charity anthology. The past four volumes have been more than successful, and we hope to continue that success with volume five.

The anthology is accepting the following submission types: short stories, flash fiction (really short short stories), poetry, creative nonfiction, essays, artwork, and photography. Specifics on each medium are explained below. Writing can be of any genre: from science fiction to Westerns to romance to literary. Your choice. All submissions have to be heavily wolf-related though. You can submit in multiple categories, but each section’s guidelines does have its own number of submissions policy.

The proceeds for this anthology will benefit National Wolfwatcher Coalition. Authors/artists will be contacted after the deadline regarding their acceptance into the anthology at which point terms and rights will be discussed. All accepted authors/artists will be published in the anthology.

THIS YEAR’S THEME: WOLVES ACROSS TIME. This means we are wanting wolves throughout history. You can connect them with modern history (e.g. recent legislation and conservation) or with ancient history (the wolves of Ancient Greece). We want to see wolves in the Classical period, in the Renaissance, the Middle Ages, Enlightenment, across different countries and cultures, too! We want to see wolves in any other number of ways the idea of wolves and history can be interpreted (including wolves who participate in alternate histories). Again, we will not accept anything in which wolves are shown negatively. This theme holds true regardless of the type of submission.

Submission Deadline: August 1st

What We Will Not Accept

  • We will not accept any portrayals of wolves in a negative light. There are no exceptions here.
  • We will not accept pure erotica or sexual explicity.
  • We will not accept profanity. If your writing is great and you do have profanity, expect to work with us to remove the profanity.
  • We will not accept previously published works of any kind.
  • We will not accept work that is not original.

Short Stories/Creative Nonfiction/Essays
