Publish Your Short Story

Publication in an anthology is a fantastic way to show your work to a wide range of readers who might not yet be familiar with your work. Anthology readers are serious consumers of literary gems, and a chance to sparkle in front of them is coveted among authors.

SOOP’s publishing model is interactive. We call it Author Driven Publishing. In order to earn a spot in one of our anthologies, you must garner 100 votes, thus proving your short story’s appeal to readers as well as your commitment to promoting it alongside us and your fellow authors in a team effort. You’ll also need to work through a few quick homework assignments.

We are currently accepting submissions for three anthologies with more in the works. 

“50 Servings of SOOP” is an un-themed anthology organized by genre-specific sections. This anthology is open to all fictional genres except erotica and fan fiction, as well as non-fiction memoir pieces. We anticipate this book being an Amazon Hot New Release, making it a valuable addition to any author’s publication list. This anthology can accommodate pieces up to 2,000 words in length.

“Women Write Now: Women in Trauma” is a curated anthology. We are honored to be working with Edna White on this project. Edna envisions a collection of intimate stories of women processing trauma, re-building self-esteem, and working through healthy, sustained recovery. This book will empower and raise awareness. It’s an opportunity for women who have experienced and overcome trauma to give hope to others. This anthology can accommodate pieces up to 4,000 words in length. Please ensure that your story is similar to one of these examples.

“Passionately Striving in ‘Why’: An Anthology of Women Who Persevere Mightily to Live Their Purpose” is a curated anthology. We are honored to be working with Alisa (Alise) Cortez, Ph.D. on this project. Dr. Cortez envisions a collection of stories from women from around the world. She’s seeking writers eager to share how they discovered their purpose, the contribution they are passionate to make by living it, and how they are striving mightily to stay true to delivering on their path. This anthology can accommodate pieces up to 4,000 words in length. Please ensure that your piece addresses these questions.
