Submission time is NOW (Deadline Nov. 1)



The Artificial Selection Project is open to a variety of art forms (fiction, music, video, and visual) that are different. Written work must be previously unpublished and the sole property of the writer submitting.

We are looking for fearless, engaging work and are open to a variety of formal and narrative modes. Challenge us, surprise us, confound us, terrify us, but whatever you do, bring us with you. Also when submitting, please include your name and complete contact information.



– The Guidelines –

Fiction: 7,500 words max. Preferably between 10-15 pps, as space is limited. And we are open to flash fiction as well. Include a brief synopsis..

Art work: A jpeg of your original work of at least 300 DPI. Include a brief description (style/genre) and an artist bio.

Music: An MP3 of a song that represents your work. Include a brief description (style/genre) and an artist bio.

Video: A link of a video that has been posted on youtube, vimeo, or any other major video sharing site. Include a brief description (style/genre) and an artist bio.

Written work submitted simultaneously to other publications is not a problem. Just let us know if some other folks accept it. We also do not accept previously published written work.

Upon acceptance, The Artificial Selection Project reserves the right to edit your work as we see fit, though we will seek your approval beforehand.
The deadline to submit is August 1, 2013!

Payment and Legality:
All contributors will receive a complimentary copy of the e-book issue in which they are published. Because we are very small, we cannot yet afford to pay our writers.

  1. I have forgotten my password and have it automatically in & am afraid to mess with it as my co-writer is always changing the site. Forgive me.
    I do like you.

  3. I’m very interested in submitting some of my work, but was wondering if you could say a few more words about what specifically you’re looking for? Specifically, any genre limitations? And how acceptable is profanity and other non-kid-friendly elements? Thanks so much! 🙂


    • Not as of right now. Poetry on E-Books tends to get shredded and thrown about the page in terms of formatting. We’re looking into HTML-5 programming and figuring out a solution to this problem. But for the moment, we’re only accepting poetry to be published on this website, which we will be posting in the near future! So submit your poetry and look for it on here soon!

  7. Hey, thanks for finding me n the morass of blogs out there! Otherwise I wouldn’t have found you. Is this a one-time publication you’re aiming to do?

    An Aug 1 deadline is tight for me. I’m working on a 2nd edition of my published memoir and a new novel. Lot’s on my plate. But I’d love to get a piece of your action! I suspect you are collecting stories for an anthology, right?

    I’ll post this on a writerly blog for which I am a contributing author. 🙂

    And thanks for the follow. Hope you enjoy my zany little blog!


    • Hey there Lorna!

      There’s a pretty big chance that the August 1 deadline is going to get pushed further into the Fall (for all those MFA kids looking for journals to submit to), so I wouldn’t worry about it too much. We’ll make an announcement regarding this later on.

      This will definitely not be our only journal! We plan to make this an annual release, hopefully working in a theme next time.

      Thanks for checking us out and for the feature!!
