2014-04-08 18:30:13 - Outskirts Press is putting the call out to Facebook fans to contribute their short literary works for inclusion in Fandemonium Volume 4. The volume is expected to hit shelves by summer.
In what’s quickly become an anticipated annual tradition, Outskirts Press is once again reaching out to the online community for contributions to its annual Fandemonium anthology, slated for publication in early summer. The Denver-based self-publishing company is accepting submissions to Fandemonium Volume 4 now through April 30.
The annual Fandemonium compilation includes stories, poetry and other short-form literary works submitted by fans of the Outskirts Press Facebook page. For three years now, Fandemonium has brought Outskirts Press Facebook members together to experience the joy of publishing first-hand, while benefiting a great cause along the way. Proceeds from the sale of the 2014 Fandemonium collection will be donated to the American Red Cross on behalf of Outskirts Press and its Facebook fans.
of the Outskirts Press Facebook community can submit poetry, short stories, excerpts, recipes or anecdotes for free publication. Submissions can be fiction, non-fiction or poetry, and entries under 5,000 words will be considered first. Getting published in the Facebook Fandemonium is simple:
• Create a "Status Update" on Facebook.
• Tag the Outskirts Press Facebook Page in the update (Type @Outskirts somewhere in the body of the message - the Outskirts Press page should pop up in a drop down message. Then select it).
• Set the update as "Public" and click "Post."
• Submit the entry before April 30, and enlist friends to “like” it on Facebook.
Submissions with the highest number of likes will be considered for inclusion in Fandemonium Volume 4. The result of this unique crowdsourcing effort is a collection of superior writing from the Outskirts Press Facebook community, the profits of which provide much-needed funding to a worthy cause.
“We received such an overwhelming response with our first three Fandemonium volumes,” said Outskirts Press Executive Vice President Kelly Schuknecht. “Not only did we get many, many enthusiastic responses – and a lot of positive feedback about Fandemonium – but we received a great deal of extremely high quality material. But then, we expect nothing less from our talented writers.”
