SFF writing in this country is going from strength to strength, but it’s all too easy for those short stories that shine like shooting stars to fade like them, too. That’s why I’m pleased to announce the first volume of the YEAR’S BEST AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY will be published later this year.
Submission details can be found here.
Shake off the holiday daze (and those last crumbs of cake), try not to trip over any empty bottles or abandoned fireworks … it’s a new year, and Paper Road Press is now open for submissions!
Please note that the open submissions period for novella and novel manuscripts will close on Monday 30 November 2015.
Thank you to everyone who has sent in manuscripts so far. We aim to respond to all submissions within six weeks of receipt.

Paper Road Press is pleased to announce a call for submissions for Track 2 of our SHORTCUTS novella series. Again, we are specifically looking to publish fiction of between 10,000 to 20,000 words, but this time we’re keen on all genres and types of stories. Accepted writers will work with some outstanding New Zealand editors to bring their stories to publication, including Thomasin Sleigh (author of Ad Lib), Rosabel Tan (editor of The Pantograph Punch) and Rachel O’Neill (author of One Human in Height).
The curator for Track 2 is Matt McGregor.
Please send submissions as .doc or .rtf attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Submission: SHORTCUTS Track 2: [Title]’ in the subject line.
Deadline 1 June 2015.
