We are open for submissions for the following projects:
The Best Weird Punk Stories
This will be a reprint anthology collecting punk short stories in the genres of horror, science fiction, bizarro fiction or weird fiction. Stories must feature either punk characters or settings. A punk attitude is not sufficient.
Length: 1,000 – 10,000 words.
Pay: $25, negotiable.
Bounty: If you send us the name of another author’s story that meets our criteria and we do not already have that story in our queue, you will receive a $10 bounty if the story is published.
Deadline: July 1, 2017 or when filled.
Send submissions as attached .doc, .docx or .rtf to weirdpunkbooks at yahoo dot com. Include a bio and a cover letter that includes where the story was originally published and the publication date.

Novellas And Novels
Weirdpunk Books is selectively looking for novellas and novels in the genres of horror, science fiction and bizarro fiction that feature punk characters or settings. A punk attitude is not sufficient.
We will review novella and novel pitches from women, trans people, queer people and people of color. We believe there are plenty of doors open already for straight, white dudes, and they should be good without another one. If we like a pitch, we’ll ask for a full manuscript. Don’t send us a full manuscript before sending us a pitch.
Send pitches as attached .doc, .docx or .rtf to weirdpunkbooks at yahoo dot com. Include a bio and a cover letter that explains why your book would be a good fit for us.
Payment would be a percentage of royalties.
