The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Where The Weird Things Are - Anthology

Limited Demographic: Australian or Kiwi authors

Submissions are now open for ‘WHERE THE WEIRD THINGS ARE’ – an upcoming location-specific speculative fiction anthology.

‘WHERE THE WEIRD THINGS ARE’ will read like a travel guide of the fantastic, far fetched and freaky things in Australia and New Zealand. Read on to find out more about what we are looking for.

Stories must be speculative in nature, as per this definition:

“Speculative fiction is an umbrella genre encompassing narrative fiction with supernatural or futuristic elements. This includes, but not limited to, science fiction, fantasy, superhero fiction, science fantasy, horror, utopian and dystopian fiction, supernatural fiction as well as combinations thereof.”

Stories must be set in a specific location, and we are wanting stories that bring the setting to life (whether it be a city, coastal town or inland scrub). While we would love you to write about places that you are intimately familiar with, we will accept stories about places that may not exist – or may not yet exist – as long as you make us believe in them.
