Submissions Call: Sans. PRESS

Writing.ie | Resources | Getting Published | Submission Opportunities


Submissions deadline: 6th September 2022

Sans. PRESS is a new independent publisher based in Limerick, Ireland. Our main focus are themed anthologies, where writers from all around the world share their unique perspectives on a single theme. Our reading interests vary with time and context, so the plan is to have Sans. PRESS oscillate between genres in each edition, using thematic submission calls to create connection and cohesion between stories.

Sans. PRESS is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.

Who we are:

She has recently finished her MA in Creative Writing in the University of Limerick, and her works include the YA Kyra, the non-fiction O Campo de Batalha Sou Eu [I am the Battlefield] and short stories in Silver Apples magazine and Riverbed Review.

Submission call: Into Chaos

From Aug 2nd to Sept 6th, we are open for short story submissions for our new collection, INTO CHAOS! We are looking for stories of all genres that respond to our title and/or cover art, and selected writers will receive a flat rate of €150 for accepted submissions.

What calling would be strong enough for one to step into darkness?

When heading into the unknown, the path is always lined by warnings – and yet, time and time again, characters barrel down that road, daring and unafraid. What is it that drives them on, despite all odds? Is it fear or is it desire? The need to escape or the siren song of adventure?

And, perhaps more importantly, what will they find when they lift the veil and peer beyond?

Be it unhinged mayhem or sublime beauty, we want stories of what happens when characters step INTO CHAOS.

For our latest anthology, we want stories inspired by our title – INTO CHAOS – and the cover artwork below, created by artist Dominique Ramsey. All genres of writing are welcome, as long as they explore a story of embracing the unknown (which can be as real or as magic as your heart desires)! More than any specific story or style, we want the emotional response the title and artwork evokes in you.

In the words of William Ernest Henley, we want tales where no matter how strait the gate,
the menace of the years finds me, and shall find me, unafraid.
