"War Is All We Know" Short-story Contest

New Anthology “War is All We Know” is now accepting manuscripts.

This anthology is designed to collect the best fiction on war. We don’t want war as a backdrop to another story, but the war or conflict must be the major part of the story. Each story must include as a quote or somewhere else in the text the phrase “War is all we know.”

All submissions will be considered for inclusion in the anthology and for contest prizes.

Anthology Series Submission Guidelines.

Contest End Date: July 15, 2009


1st: $30 and free copy

2nd: $20 and free copy

3rd: $10 and free copy

Page length: Between 20-40 pages, but we would consider longer or slightly shorter pieces.

Some things to consider before you submit to us:

We DO NOT accept previously published material for any of our anthologies.

We acquire first time world rights and re-print rights (only to re-print the same anthology as a paperback, hardback, or audiobook). All other rights revert back to the author 12 months following publication as outlined on our release form.

Materials will not be returned. All materials will be shredded and recycled.


Hard copy via regular mail

Please send one double-spaced typed copy of your story with your name on each page and include page numbers.

With your story, please submit a cover letter with a short biography listing your credentials, stating to what anthology you are submitting, and including an active E-mail address.


Before you submit please be aware that the compensation, unless otherwise noted, will include publication of the work (if accepted) and a brief author biography. For all short story anthologies (excluding the poetry anthology), authors residing in the United States will receive one free copy of the work. The author may also be able to purchase discounted copies of the work.

Acceptance or Rejection:

You can expect to receive a reply via E-mail regarding the acceptance or rejection of your manuscript once the review process is complete.
