    They require a $10 reading fee, which I’m not too keen on. Too often, reading fees are part of scams. In this case, I think they want to insure every author with any old work sitting on their hard drive thinks twice before submitting it. Saves them time slogging through hundreds of nihilistic-noir style stories that aren’t Catholic at all. Still, writer beware. Finally, I can’t find any explicit statement of who owns the submissions. Many writer contests, the contest-runner owns all rights (including media not yet invented) for all time to the submissions. The writer gives away his story for the chance at winning the prize. Avoid such contests. Finally, as a wannabe science fiction writer, I find it sad the submissions page has no category for science fiction.

      Well, yes and no. I am also trying to sort out whether they are, ultimately, a subsidy house. But as to not having a SciFi list . . . they’re brand new, with one editor and one publisher, and I would be more skeptical of them if they proposed to publish everything. If they don’t have expertise in Science Fiction, they probably wouldn’t do it well or successfully.

      • MClark

        You make a good point that they may not have experience publishing science fiction. I’ll try to keep that in mind in the future.

    What I’d like to see is a contest for Catholic poetry!
