Peathraichean Publishing (www.peathraicheanpublishing.com) is accepting submissions of manuscripts and/or proposals. Submissions can be made by agents or authors directly. To submit material for consideration, please send the material in PDF (preferred) or Word format to:


Currently, we are most interested in receiving original, unpublished short stories for an upcoming anthology. Short stories may be either fiction or non-fiction, under 5,000 words in length and focused on the following categories:

anorexia nervosa

The stories submitted should be in PDF (preferred) or Word format as an attachment to the cover email. The cover email should include the following: the writer’s name, story title, a brief two-line summary, the word count, the writer’s contact information and whether the submission is fiction or non-fiction. Previously published stories are acceptable, as long as you retain the copyright.

Submissions for inclusion in the anthology are open to writers from all countries; however, the submissions should be in English and should be sent no later than September 30, 2015, as the anthology will be published in Winter 2015/2016, in both hardcover and eBook format. Writers will maintain ownership of all copyrighted material.
