Additional Details

There are no submission fees. We also do not charge readers for online content. This means we are terrible capitalists, or maybe it highlights how capitalism is in direct conflict with amplifying ALL voices.

Submission decisions will be made within four months, but we expect to respond much earlier in most cases. If you haven’t heard from us within 120 days, feel free to send us a nudge.

Contributors will be published online and in the print anthology scheduled for publication in December 2021. Contributors will receive a free copy of the Fat Coyote anthology plus payment.

All publication rights revert back to the author/artist upon the print publication’s release.
