Third Flat Iron is now accepting stories for the fall issue, which will have a "War" theme.
Stories should be submitted in either Microsoft Word (using one and a half line spacing), RTF, or plain text. They should be between 1,500 and 3,000 words. Humor pieces should be short, around 600 words.
Submit by email to email@example.com either as an attachment (Word) or in the body of the mail (text).
In the Subject: line of the email, please put flatsubmit:Title_of_Your_Work
If the work is for the humor section, please note that in the body of your email. A brief bio and a one- or two-sentence synopsis in the body of your email would also be helpful to us.
USE THE FOLLOWING TEMPLATE:
- Your Name
- Word count
- [10 blank lines]
- Body of story
Our response time is expected to be about 8 weeks (or less if the deadline is coming up soon).
Your story must be original work, with the digital rights unencumbered. Accepted stories will be paid at the flat rate of 2 cents per word, in return for the digital rights to the story. All other rights will remain with the author.
Third Flatiron will price and market your story to various e-publishing venues. We will format the story for the most popular electronic readers and platforms. You agree that we may distribute a sample (portion of the story) to potential customers.
For our first issues in 2012, if the story sales are greater than $25.00 US, we will also send royalties. Most hardcopy book publishers only provide 5% in royalties. We will return 70% of online sales greater than $25.00 to you. In the case of anthologies this will be split evenly among the authors in a collection.
For non-U.S. submissions, we prefer to pay via PayPal, if you have such an account.
Authors selected for publication will be entitled to one free online copy of the anthology.
