If you’ve got short stories, recipes, poetry and other short, as-yet-unpublished works the world should see, it’s not too late to get the ball rolling on getting them published. Outskirts Press is accepting submissions from its Facebook fans of short literary works to be included in Fandemonium Volume 5, through April 30.
Fandemonium has become an anticipated annual tradition for the self-publishing community. This unique crowdsourcing effort is a collection of superior writing from the Outskirts Press Facebook community that always proves popular among readers. Not only that, but the profits provide much-needed funding to a worthy cause. So, once again, Outskirts Press is calling out to that community online for contributions of short literary works for the annual Fandemonium anthology, slated to hit the bookshelves this summer.
The annual Fandemonium compilation includes a variety of works: short stories, poetry and other short-form literary works submitted by fans of the Outskirts Press Facebook page. Over the past four years, Fandemonium has brought Outskirts Press Facebook members together to experience the joy of publishing first-hand, while benefiting a great cause. Proceeds from the sale of the 2015 Fandemonium collection will be donated to a charity of choice on behalf of Outskirts Press and its Facebook fans. The American Red Cross will receive the proceeds from the sale of the Fandemonium Volume 5 anthology.
If you’re not already a member of the Outskirts Press Facebook community, become one by liking us on Facebook. Once that’s done, you can submit poetry, short stories, excerpts, recipes or anecdotes for free publication – you’re limited only by your imagination! Submissions can be fiction, non-fiction or poetry, though entries of fewer than 5,000 words will be considered first. Getting published in the Facebook Fandemonium is simple:
- Submit your entry as a comment on our Facebook Page before April 30.
- Encourage your Facebook friends to “like” your entry by visiting our Facebook page.
- You can also “share” your post with your Facebook friends to encourage more “likes.”
Submissions with the highest number of likes will be considered for inclusion in Fandemonium Volume 5.
