Applicants selected to be featured in the Review will be awarded three (3) contributor copies of the publication as well as $15 (USD) via check or PayPal or $30 (USD) for the novella competition. Any international writers (outside the US) will be paid via PayPal only. There is no entry fee, and applicants may submit as many stories as they would like. All we ask is that these simple rules be followed:

  • All entries must be submitted before the deadline, October 31st, 2016. Responses will follow a few weeks after the deadline, usually November 15th.
  • For short stories and poetry, there is no limit on word count, though moderately sized stories stand a better chance. Novella entries must be 17,5000 words or more, broken up into several chapters.
  • Final decisions are purely on the opinion of the editor of the collection, L.S. Engler. We strive for variety above all else and welcome all genres.

EDIT 8/25/16: We ask for one-time, non-exclusive anthology rights, which means that you retain all rights to your work. We may ask to feature your story on this website or in future volumes, but we will only do so with your express permission.
We will also be accepting submissions for cover art, original drawings or photographs that might be chosen for the cover of the WUR’s first issue. Due to the important nature of a cover, the payment for the winning photograph or artwork will be $25 (USD).
