Submission Guidelines:

*Authors who wish to participate can sign up any time from October 1st to November 20th, 2012 by filling out the sign-up form on this page.

*Your submission must be emailed to us at no later than November 20th, 2012 for inclusion.

*When submitting, authors should include the title, author's name, their website or profile URL, any rating information (see below), and specify whether the submission is original fiction or fanfiction in the body of the email. Additionally, authors are welcome to include a note to readers should they choose to do so.

*Authors may include a brief bio in lieu of an author's note if they so choose. Artists are encouraged to provide a bio for inclusion on an Artists' Acknowledgement Page as well.

*Submissions should be emailed as .doc, .docx, .rtf attachments, or sent as a Google Doc to Please do not send .pdf or .mobi versions.

*Submissions should be in Times New Roman, 12-point font, and double spaced.

*Submissions can be any length, genre, or rating, original fiction or fanfiction. Stories containing bestiality, rape, abuse, incest or similar offensive themes will not be accepted.

*Any submissions with mature or NC-17 ratings must be clearly marked.

*Stories MUST be edited prior to submission and be publication ready. We reserve the right to reject any submission that is not publication ready (ie: proper spelling and grammar, formatting, etc).

*If the submission is fanfiction, it must be from an original author who has not expressly forbidden fanfiction. ie: JR Ward and Anne Rice have both requested that fans not use their characters or plotlines in works of fanfiction.

*Artwork such as a story or author banner or a book cover (where appropriate) may be included with your submission.

*If you would like an artist to help provide a banner for your submission, email us at with your story details no later than November 5th, 2012 so we can contact volunteer artists on your behalf.

*Original fiction authors retain all rights to their work, and merely grant us the one-time, non-exclusive right to publish their work in the Compilation. Original characters, plotlines, and story elements in fanfiction pieces belong to their creator.

*Fanfiction authors, we ask that you refrain from posting your stories to your profiles until December 15th, 2012.

It's our belief that every author who wishes to participate in the fundraiser should be able to do so whether they write fanfiction in their spare time or are New York Times bestsellers. As such, and provided that the submission guidelines are met, all stories will be accepted. In exchange, all authors will receive the compilation free of charge, and will be listed on the Fandom for Preemies blog as a contributing author. We encourage you to let others know of your participation.
