a home for the wretched writer

Zombie Pirate Publishing was founded in a small Australian backyard in 2017 with an aim to take what we had learned being published in various anthologies, and see if we could make something of our own. In a very short time we have created a vibrant online community and released THE COLLAPSAR DIRECTIVERELATIONSHIP ADD VICE,  FULL METAL HORROR, and PHUKET TATTOO: Crazy Tales of Far Away Places, four short story anthologies showcasing authors from around the world. Our fifth anthology, WITCHES VS WIZARDS: A Fantasy Anthology, is available now. Our next call for submissions, WORLD WAR FOUR: A Science Fiction Anthology, closes December 1st. What we want most is compelling stories that break the rules. To support Zombie Pirate Publishing please visit our Patreon page and find out about our exciting reward tiers.

Seeking short stories and novellas

WORLD WAR FOUR: A Science Fiction Anthology is seeking short stories 1,500-7,500 words long. Successful submissions will take place during the fourth world war or in the aftermath thereof. One submission per author. Submissions close December 1st 2018. Send your story to today.

FLASH FICTION ADDICTION is now open. We are seeking very short stories 100-750 words long. You may send a few different stories and we will choose our favourite. There is no close date. We will read and answer all submissions within a few weeks of receiving them. Once we have 101 accepted stories, subs will close and editing will begin, so get your stories in before it's too late. Please submit to the dedicated new email

ZPP is also seeking novellas 30,000 - 40,000 words on any theme or topic. (There is currently a backlog on novellas and detailed responses may take 6+ months.)
