Call for Submissions: On the Clock: Contemporary Short Fiction of People and Their Work

I will be co-editing an anthology of fiction about post-industrial work life. Here are the details. Please spread the word. Blog. Tweet. Email. Print out the flyer below and post it everywhere.

On the Clock: Contemporary Short Fiction of People and Their Work
Working Lives Series from Bottom Dog Press Inc.

We want to anthologize some outstanding fiction about working in a post-industrial world or making the transition from manual labor to intellectual labor, or the conflict of living in both spheres. In short, we want modern stories about people and their work. Although we prefer post-industrial fiction, we will also look at any fiction that deals with work in a meaningful way. Money and how we earn it are an endless source of conflict, loss, redemption and the source of great fiction. Please send us your best fiction about work.


Length: up to 5,000 words.

Submissions are open now.

Deadline: October 1, 2009.

Email submissions strongly preferred (query first if you absolutely must send a hard copy). Send attached .rtf or .doc file to: ontheclocksubmissions [at] and make sure the word “Submission” is somewhere in the subject line.

Payment: $50 and two copies

Reprints are acceptable. Please let us know where it’s been published.

Simultaneous submissions are okay as long as we are notified immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Multiple submissions are allowed, up to three stories.
