Transgressive Anthology... SUBMISSION CALL: "Writings On The Wall"

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

This one is for all you Chuck fans out there. Seven Archons is collecting stories for their first anthology of transgressive fiction. See the guidlines below.


What if your identity was a prison and self-destruction was your freedom? For "Writings on the Wall", we're looking for original transgressive tales involving highly developed characters who are nihilistic, anti-social, and seemingly mentally ill. These characters should feel out of touch, not only with themselves, but with the world around them. Give us your grittiest, unbound fiction. Stay to the point, but nothing is off limits. However, keep in mind we do want quality writing. If it is purely for the sake of shock value, it will be rejected.

Deadline: July 1
Please submit in:

12 Pt. Courier
