Dark Opus Press is proud to present All That's Left of Yesterday, our fourth annual anthology. We will be looking for stories of the apocalypse, whether it be caused by disease, natural disaster, economic collapse or something else entirely, it 's up to you. However, we won't be looking for zombie stories. Zombies will be saved for another anthology. As usual, we will not be accepting poetry, reprints or artwork for this anthology.
Our guidelines are simple. All stories must have a dark bent to them and be between 2,000 and 5,000 words. This word count is firm and stories outside this word range will not be considered.
MUST be in proper manuscript format. This means: Courier New or Times New Roman fonts, doubled spaced, no extra space between paragraphs, indent paragraphs. Words meant to be italicised or bolded in the final print, please make sure it is that way in your manuscript.
Please read our magazine guidelines to see what we do not want. If you don't review our magazine guidelines, we will know.
