Submissions Open Call: Sans.PRESS | Guest Bloggers | Wordspark


Submissions deadline: 2nd July 2024

Until July 2, Sans.PRESS are looking for stories for our 8th anthology, The Garden:

From metaphorical blooms to very real bugs, we want to unpick the tapestry of life and death of a garden.

Who are Sans. PRESS?

There are many things we want Sans. PRESS to be: an editorial imprint; an independent publisher; a staunch supporter of new voices in literature; a constant presence in your bookshelves.

As of right now, we are a collective of friends who are in love with telling stories, and who are passionate about sharing them. We are united in our passion for finding new voices, new narratives, new ways of seeing and sharing the world. And as we progress in this project, this will always be what’s at the core of Sans. PRESS: finding stories that fascinate us.
