Call for Submissions: The Prescription Bottle Project
We, as a society, take a lot of pills these days. The result of this is all these little (and big) brown pill bottles left over. Wild Age Press has decided to fill them with your words, and then distribute them. Do you have a story that’s a “prescription” to something? Stifling nostalgia? Sexism? Road rage? Irritating bubbly happiness? Indifference to global warming? We’d love to read it.
What to send: Prose, poetry, comics/graphic stories, or any mix thereof. Please include a cover letter that includes the thing your story/poem/comic is a prescription to. No previously published work, please.
How much to send: 3 pages max — shorter is better.
When to send it: By midnight (EST) September 1, 2013.
Where to send it: [email protected] Put your last name and the title of your submission in the subject field, please. Email attachment (any normal file format) is fine, so is copy/pasting the text into the body of the email.
Why to submit: You get to say you had the first ISBN on a pill bottle, $15, 2 free copies, and mad street cred.
Remember, if you don’t follow these simple guidelines, your submission will be deleted unread. End. of. Story. If we don’t get any submissions we love, we won’t publish anything, because that would be unfair to both us and you. We doubt that will happen, though. We think we’re going to get some awesome stuff, and we’re excited to read it.

Call for Submissions: Comics/Graphic Stories
Wild Age Press will begin accepting queries for comics and graphic novels/memoirs/stories/things beginning January 1, 2014. If you’d like to send us something before then, check out the guidelines for The Prescription Bottle Project above. Otherwise, you can figure out whether or not your book fits our style and prepare your query. How do you know you have a book that fits our style? Well, buy one of our books!
