Without wishing to sound terribly grand about it, we are now officially open for submissions.
Things you should know
We’re a collective and we’re still learning. We know how to put a book together and publish it, but we’re still learning the financial and legal side. We’ll get better and more organized as we evolve. If you’re not comfortable with this and prepared to cut us some slack, then move on. There’s nothing to see here.
Otherwise, this is an opportunity for you to work with other writers, showcase your talent, develop your skills and experience, and become involved in the overall Pankhearst program.
We have a number of talented young editors and writers already signed up to these projects.
We work as a collective with the objective of writer development and promotion. We do not pay advances, make fixed sum payments to contributors, or guarantee any financial return. Everybody works for free. Any and all profits on any project will be shared among all the contributors on a basis that will be determined by that project’s editors. For writers it will probably be proportional and based on word count.
Submissions must be your own, previously unpublished work.
If you participate in any of these projects, you will be granting us the right to publish your story in paperback and ebook for ever and ever – amen. You will be granting us that right exclusively for the first three months after publication. After that time, you may do whatever else you would like to with your story but we will retain the perpetual right to publish it within the original Pankhearst collection.
You may be based anywhere around the world. Current Pankhearst members/contributors are based in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and a cruise ship roaming somewhere in international waters.
The importantest bit
Pankhearst welcomes everybody, regardless of age, color, disability, familial or parental status, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and anything else you can think of.
If we haven’t put you off yet, you can find a few more details and contact us via our Submissions page.
