The themes for 2018 will be on the site later this year, along with details of our plans for accepting submissions of novels and collections, so please check back later in 2017.
General Ezine Submissions
Acceptances and rejections will be sent out in the month following the deadline.
Issues are themed, but unthemed work will also be considered, with approximately a third of any issue being unthemed.
Because the ezine is a non-paying market, we are happy to consider reprints (but preferably not ones easily available online – feel free to query) and extremely short submissions (there is no minimum length). Multiple submissions are acceptable but not simultaneous submissions.
Submissions and queries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with Submission (noting theme, general submission or artwork as appropriate) or Query in the subject line.
Every submission received will receive an acknowledgement email. Acceptances and rejections will go out after the closing date for the issue they are submitted to (unthemed submissions will be replied to after the closing date of the next due issue). If you haven’t heard within three weeks of the closing date, please feel free to query.
We require no specific rights, but do ask that work accepted for Tigershark ezine not be published elsewhere between the closing date for submissions (approximately one month before publication date) and three months following the issue’s publication. After that period you may freely submit your work elsewhere (exception for Best of Year anthologies).
Please remember that if previously unpublished work is published in Tigershark, you may be unable to enter it in competitions and it will be classed as a reprint when submitting elsewhere.
We’re pretty easy going at Tigershark. If you need a clarification or are seeking an exception to a rule above, get in touch and we’ll try to accommodate you.
