Call for Submissions: Australian Literature Anthology – Basics of Life

Post date: 27 November 2010
Deadline: 28 February 2011

The Australian Literature Review is accepting submissions for a short story anthology, focused on basic concerns of human life in the areas of survival, friendship, romantic love, ambition, responsibility and death. It will be published both as a print book and ebook.

Two stories (4000 – 10,000 words each) will be selected in each of the six areas.

Each author will receive royalties of 4% of gross revenue received by The Australian Literature Review from sales of the anthology, after any direct material costs of publication/distribution, and each author will retain copyright for their story beyond its use in the anthology.

Submissions are due by midnight February 28th 2011, for publication in May 2011.

A little on each area, with examples of stories dealing with each area, is outlined below. You can click on an image to read a blurb, and in some cases also watch a video, for each example.

Send submissions to auslit@hotmail.com.
