WILD BOAR BOOKS are getting ready to start work on our next publication –  it’s going to be an anthology. An awesome anthology, and we want to hear from you.

What we want

We are keen to hear from writers of both poetry and fiction who are from LINCOLNSHIRE or who are currently living here.

We want to compile an anthology of writing from Lincolnshire. It doesn’t have to be about Lincolnshire – just by people who are from the county or have a connection with it. We are looking for exciting pieces, wild pieces, pieces that are honest, authentic and unsettling that will make the reader think ‘wowzers, that’s brilliant!’

WILD BOAR BOOKS want to advocate for this small corner of the universe that is so easily forgotten. We believe there are hidden voices just waiting for an opportunity to shout their weird and wonderful truth to the world. Wild Boar Books want these kind of writers and we want to put them together in an anthology.

What we are looking for

FICTION: 

Short stories of up to 5000 words: exciting, wild, unsettling.

Double spaced, 12 point, author name and contact in the footer of each page.

Include a brief cover letter about yourself as a writer and your life and connection with Lincolnshire.

POETRY:

Up to 5 poems. Author name and contact in the footer of each page. No line limit.

Include a brief cover letter about yourself as a writer and your life and connection with Lincolnshire.

When & How

Please make your work as polished as possible. The closing date for submissions is 30th September 2017. Send your writing to: hellowildboarbooks@gmail.com

Go on, tickle our snouts!
