The Human Condition Anthology
Infinite Pathways Press is pleased to announce open submissions for our first anthology.
For the past two years that Infinite Pathways has been bringing editing & publicity tips, opinion pieces, poetry, book reviews and author interviews and it’s now time for us to follow through on our promise to help you build your author platform in the publishing world.
June 1st –
August 1s September 1st
For the next
two three months we are holding FREE open submissions to “The Human Condition” anthology. This compendium is not just limited to the human condition though, this is just a lens for writers and readers to visit moments of humanity from memoir and personal writing to science fiction and fantasy stories that reflect our humanity back to us, whether the main character are actually of the ‘human race’ or not.
We are specifically interested in CANADIAN authors at this time, as a way of paying homage to the humanity of the editor’s native country. This does not mean that IP is looking for “Canadiana” pieces. It is our goal to help celebrate the writing of choice for those writers who are simply citizens of Canada – for our perspective, whether we intend it to be or not, is inherently Canadian.

What You Will Get
As an author in the anthology you will receive full acknowledgement for your creative works. After the first 12 months in the publication, should IP earn more than the cost of developing the anthology, bonuses will be given out to each contributor based on the type of work included in the book.
This will be a co-operative piece where each author participating in the anthology will help to publicize it to the best of their ability including (but not limited to): prolific use of social media platforms, guest blog posts, book tours (personal and joint) as well as in-person sales and marketing.
Each contributor will receive a free eBook copy of the anthology and a discount toward any print books ordered.
All of this and more will be outlined in the contract.
