Guidance for Authors

So you want to write for Fringeworks?

First, we are always interested in hearing proposals from writers or editors with a track record. If you have the skills and are experienced in making a foray into the world of editing, we are willing to discuss this further. If you have an idea for an anthology, that’s great. If not, we have a sandbox full of ideas that we plan to bring to fruition in the coming months and years.

For first-time authors, the route to getting published is through our anthologies. Watch these pages for announcements – we usually have a submissions window of around 6 months, and we tend to look for original genre tales between 2,000-6,000 words in length. We will also consider stories that have been previously published (if the rights are yours to give), but priority will always be given to original fiction, and it will also depend on where those stories were previously published.

While each book we publish is unique and may have different terms and conditions, our standard approach is to seek:

– First Publishing or Reprint Rights
– Compilation Rights
– Electronic Publishing Rights
– Royalties based on the number of stories (rule of thumb is 4-6% for a twelve story anthology, 10-12% for a six story anthology, 25% for a 2 story volume, and 50% for a stand-alone)

In some cases (shared worlds, for example) we will commission works for hire.

For established authors (i.e. professionally published authors) we are open to negotiation, and would rather enter into a dialogue than rely on standard terms.
