Submission Guidelines

  • Stories can be in any crime sub-genre. If a crime is central to the plot, it's suitable for this anthology.
  • Your story must match the anthology theme: every stolen vote is a crime. 
  • You are free to interpret the theme as literally or metaphorically as you wish.
  • Story length: 2,500 to10,000 words.
  • Any time period or location is acceptable for this anthology. 
  • In Volume I, many authors experimented with form and voice. Please feel free to experiment!
  • Narrative non-fiction will also be considered.
  • DEADLINE: January 31, 2020.
Volume II is meant to be bigger, louder, and more diverse than Volume I. Berry Content Corporation will purchase FNAR for 12 months from publication date. Pay is $100 per story, payable on acceptance, plus three author copies. We wish it could be more.
