We’re always looking for new writers and artists to work with, but as a new publisher, our resources and time are limited. Every title we develop becomes part of the Stray Books family, being promoted, sold, and a part of who we are for years. As much as we love working with new talent and developing unique books, or ability to do so is limited. Currently, we are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts or pitches due to that limitation.
We are accepting short stories/short writing pieces for Pulp Kings: Series 2.
Pulp Kings is a publication designed to promote new writers and artists. We have completed our first series of the magazine, and are looking for stories for Series 2. Each series is comprised of five issues, and each issue is themed. While a story’s tie to the issue theme can be loose, please be aware of the thematic content of the issues before submitting.
