Anthology Idea Submission



Do you have a network united by a common cause or a community of fellow authors whose works compliment each other? You might be a great candidate to curate a SOOP anthology. Curating an anthology is an excellent way to boost your name recognition and propel acknowledgement of your expertise in a particular subject to new heights. 

SOOP has developed a program that gives curators creative control while helping them guide authors’ energies more productively. SOOP also manages publication details for our curators while getting their valued input every step of the way. Curating an anthology with SOOP affords you these positives; increased name recognition and spreading a powerful message that matters to you, while alleviating many of the headaches intrinsic to compiling a book with 25-plus authors.

Get started now! Fill out the form below; it will generate an Anthology Idea page like this one that you can use to gather initial interest in your vision. A vote on this page means that someone is genuinely interested in submitting a Short Story Idea to your anthology once that option becomes available. Get 50 people to express initial interest by voting, and we’ll open your anthology up to submissions after you’ve completed a bit of prep work in consultation with SOOP executives.

Submit Your Anthology Idea

  • Please provide your first and last names.
  • This is for our internal use only and will not be shared.
  • What is the title of your Anthology?
  • A brief summary of your Anthology
  • Note that the maximum word count of your book should be 100,000 words or less. Please keep that in mind when deciding this.
  • A prompt can be a question, an invitation to create a story based on a few pertinent details, or a call for the author to relate his or her personal experiences with your theme. Remember to strike the right tone. If your Anthology Idea is for a horror collection, your tone could be ominous. If your Anthology Idea is themed around self-improvement, your tone could be professional but warm and encouraging. Please keep your writing prompts short, simple, and direct—aim for something tweetable.
  • These can be Short Story Ideas that you find via our website or links to stories that you have read elsewhere. The goal here is to simply provide those who are interested with a more specific idea of what fits your vision.
