Ruler's Wit

Dark and Light

Ruler’s Wit have published an anthology of short stories following the theme of dark and light – whatever that meant to each writer. In addition to writing a selection of stories ourselves, we opened this project up to submissions from other writers and invite them to submit an entry for potential publication.

Submissions are now closed

Terms and conditions

Any changes to the above guidelines will be posted on our website.

Copyright remains with the author but Ruler’s Wit has the unrestricted right to publish extracts from the stories in our anthology and in any relevant promotional material.

At the point of submission authors accept our terms and conditions.

We do not accept entries that have been previously published. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but we ask that you notify us immediately if the piece is accepted elsewhere. If the piece is accepted elsewhere, you will need to withdraw it from our anthology.

Ruler’s Wit will correct any spelling, grammatical and formatting errors before publication in line with our house style. Ruler’s Wit will give authors seven days to agree any edits before publication.

Entrants can opt out of publication at any point but we do ask for notification as soon as possible. Unless otherwise informed, Ruler’s Wit will assume acceptance to use any submitted work.

Ruler’s Wit decisions on which material will be published, and when publication happens, will be final. 

Entries must be submitted online. No email submissions.
