Submission Guidelines - Collections

Following on from the success of our flash-fiction pamphlets, we are now looking for full flash-fiction collections to publish. These can be in any genre, and as standard or experimental as you wish. It can be a collection of your best work, or something built around an idea or a theme, but it must be a coherent body of work and be filled with writing which moves and excites.

The only guidelines are that we are looking for collections between 20,000 and 40,000 words in total, with no single piece being any longer than 1000 words.

If you are interested in submitting a collection, please contact us in the first instance at gumbosubmissions AT gmail DOT com. Include up to 5 of your fictions, an overview of the whole collection and a brief bio of yourself as a writer. Please put the word COLLECTION in the title of the email.

This is an exciting new venture for Gumbo Press and we look forward to reading your work.
