Appalling Limericks 0

A project of Sam's Dot Publishing

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


Sam's Dot Publishing now is accepting submissions for a new illustrated poetrybook in the genres of FANTASY, SCIENCE FICTION, and HORROR -- a collection of limericks, titled "Appalling Limericks." It is to be published in our illustrated chapbook format. And keep in mind that we don't necessarily mean anything by "appalling." We want quality material...funny, bawdy, strange, off-beat. "Appalling" is simply our marketing title.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
