Call for submissions

Stoshwolfen.com is planning to begin publishing non-fiction and fiction in print.

If any of you are wanna-be writers or if you know somebody who is, we want to see your work if it is suitable for publication. Query by email. Guidelines are in this notice so be sure to read the whole thing.

The format for fiction is novella. No advances at this time, but will pay 5% royalties on any title we publish. Accepting email submissions. Manuscript should be an attachment. The manuscript must be in MS Word format or OpenDocument format (OpenOffice.org). No macros. If you include illustrations they must be B&W, no color illustrations at this time. Maximum 40,000 words.

No erotica. No vampires. Use at least a 12 point font, double spaced. The title, your name, and the approximate word count must appear on the cover page of the manuscript. Title, page number, and your last name should appear on each page as a header. Grammar, spelling, and typographical errors all count so make it a clean file, please. English only.

Please include the word “QUERY” or the word “SUBMISSION” in the subject line as appropriate for your material. If accepted we will offer a contract for publication rights including copyright in your name.

Well written history is good. Non-fiction will be fact checked prior to acceptance. For fiction up to 40,000 words we are finding our voice so we are open to all genres except erotica. Science fiction and historical fiction is preferred. We will consider essays and opinion pieces on current events and political subjects.

Will acknowledge receipt of all submissions. Will respond whether interested within 6 weeks of receipt. If you don’t hear back within 8 weeks assume your material was not suitable to our current needs.
