Call for ROAR 6
ROAR 6 is closed to submissions. It was released at AnthroCon 2015, and it can be ordered online from FurPlanet. There may be an open call for submissions to a subsequent issue of ROAR. To find out, visit www.marylowd.com.
For reference, the guidelines are still here:
We're looking for excellent general audience furry stories on the theme
"scoundrel." Submissions should be under 12,000 words, no
lower limit. If you have an excellent story, but you're not
sure it fits the theme, give it a try. We can be flexible on
"scoundrel," but all stories have to be furry. That means an
anthropomorphic animal figure should be significantly featured in your
story -- it could be anthropomorphic in body or only
intelligence. We'll consider any type of furry fiction from
secret life of animals to fox in Starbucks -- as long as it's excellent.
Please send submissions as an attached .doc, .docx, or .rtf file in
standard manuscript format to ROARanthology(at)gmail.com.
We're hoping to release ROAR 6 at AnthroCon, so the deadline is April
1st, 2015. For multiple submissions, reprints, or other questions,
please query. We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
ROAR is a paying market. Payment will be 1/2 cent per word
and one contributor's copy on publication.*
All submissions will be replied to by May 1st, possibly much earlier.
The ROAR anthologies are a FurPlanet
production. The editor for ROAR 6 is Mary E. Lowd.
mainstream sf/f/h markets may pay higher rates, 1/2 cent per
word is currently standard in the furry genre. Hopefully, it will
possible to increase the standard rate in the future. For now,
mind that publishing in ROAR does use up a story's first rights;
subsequent publications of the story would only be reprints, which are
not accepted by most markets and often receive lower pay rates when
