Share Your Story

Ash Tales is open to submissions from up-and-coming writers.
If you’d like to have your short story featured on the website, fill in the contact form below.

Submission Details

  • Stories need to be post-apocalyptic, apocalyptic or dystopian in nature.
  • We’ll accept stories up to and including 2000 words (though we can flex if it’s a killer story).
  • Please upload in .doc, .docx or .txt format.

Benefits of Publication

Published stories will be featured on the Ash Tales site, and shared with thousands of post apocalyptic aficionados through our social media accounts and weekly newsletter. We’ll also feature a dedicated authorship bio, promoting links to your website and social media accounts.

Great stories will also be considered for inclusion in the Ash Tales podcast, where they’ll receive a dedicated, fully-narrated episode, and an author interview published on the Ash Tales blog.

Ash Tales - Featured Author Badge“My face blushed so hard when I started listening to your recording of All the Elders Orphans! As you know, I’ve not had any of these experiences before, and it’s so crazy exciting. I don’t know whether to giggle or just run around in circles. Or both.”

— Melissa Dykes, author of All the Elders Orphans
