Scout Media now accepting submissions for A Contract of Words!

Scout Media is currently focusing primarily on our short story "Of Words" anthology series. We are not accepting submissions for novels at this time.

The 4th anthology in the 'Of Words' series will be "A Contract of Words."
Submissions will begin on July 1, 2017.

A Contract of Words:

Theme guidelines - All stories must involve, be the result of, or the final product of two or more people/things entering into a contract with each other (the NOUN version of contract; not the verb). Think about all the contracts we agree to ever day: signing your debit/credit card slip is a contract to pay for your purchase, a lease on an apartment, a deed, a will, a marriage, a divorce, an adoption, joining the military, bands signing with labels, authors signing with publishers, actors signing on to a movie, hiring someone to murder your wife, staying at a hotel, hiring a plumber/electrician/contractor to work on your house or business, buying a plane ticket, buying a concert ticket, selling your soul for something you desire… Contracts can be finalized in a multitude of different ways: written agreement, verbal, a handshake, mixing blood or spit (blood brothers pact), and pinky swears (or anything else you can come up with). A stipulation is that if the contract is breached, (or even not breached, based on the ruthlessness of your characters) then there is a consequence; either legally, financially, or personal, etc.

ALL WORK SUBMITTED TO SCOUT MEDIA REMAINS PROPERTY OF THE AUTHOR. SCOUT MEDIA WILL NEVER SHARE YOUR WORK, OR RELEASE YOUR WORK, WITHOUT PERMISSION.
