We are now accepting submissions for the Fur Reality 2017  Anthology. This book is given out for free to all convention attendees.

Last year we had a record number of story submissions. This year we’re allowing slightly longer wordcounts, but we’re going to be  more strict on entries that don’t meet the submission deadline, so be sure to get your submissions in early.

 

This year’s conbook deadline is July 16th, 2017.

This year’s theme is “The World After…”, with a focus on the world after apocalypse.

Templates for art and comics are available at the bottom of the page.

 

Submissions Policy:

Stories: As you may know, we love having stories in our Anthology. If you are an author interested in submitting to our convention anthology, please read the information below.

If your story submission is accompanied by a piece of artwork, please submit both at the same time.  All submissions must have a title and at least one form of contact information for the submitting creator.

For stories/poems:
* Length must be 3000 words or less
* Rating must be PG13 or under
* Please edit/correct your work before submitting
* Text submissions must be sent in .txt, .rtf, .doc, or .odt format. Please include your pen name and the name of the story in the file format (ie: If I wrote a story called “Because: Aliens”, the filename would be: salmagundi_becausealiens.doc)
* Stories that fit with the convention theme may receive preference
* It’s unlikely, but we may edit/crop submissions for length
* We ask that authors not post their stories online until at least one month after the convention has occurred.
