Anthologies and Collections from 2023

There are a number of short stories in anthologies and collections, specifically those that have been or will be published in 2023, that deserve to get in front of more readers. We want to shine more light across our community and widen our circle to make room for more writers and readers. In specific, PseudoPod has penciled out space in a large portion of November and December 2023 to support this effort.

PseudoPod Flash Fiction Contest

The eight incarnation of the Escape Artists Flash Fiction Contest will start again with stories coming in October 2023. Submissions will be open in August of 2023. Every author may submit one original story of 500 words or less for consideration. The competition will begin in October. The three winning stories will be purchased and run as an episode of PseudoPod. Payment will be $40 so this will be considered a SFWA qualified pro sale. Stories will be published on a members-only section of the forums, so first publication rights will not be expended by participating in the contest. It’s easy to be become a member. Sign up for a forum account and make a single post so we know you’re not a bot. All the pertinent details will be posted under “The Arcade”. Visit for rules and details.
