The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Futures Anthology - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
Bell Press Books

Submissions are now open for the FUTURES anthology. The future is filled with many things: dreams, dread, hope, despair. The future is inevitable. It pushes forward the course of our lives, it dreams up our ideas of an afterlife, and it forces us to imagine the inevitable end of this world. It drives us towards changes.

What kind of future do you imagine? What is a future you’d like to see? Is the idea of “futures” and linear time a freeing or restraining concept? Send us your best poetry, fiction, essays, or creative non-fiction on the the theme of FUTURES. We welcome writing of all genres and forms (you name it: sci-fi, prose poems, literary fiction, political essays, philosophy, abstract poetry, life stories, fantasy…)

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
