If you write short stories or poetry and would like to see your work published, then writerselection is for you.
Members can read and rate each other’s work. Highest rated short stories and poems will be published as both hard copy and ebook. You retain copyright over your work and receive royalties from any book sales. (see below for details)
How writerselection works
You can join the site as a Reader Member or as a Writer Member.
Writer Members can upload as many short stories or poems as they wish.
Reader Members have access to the whole site but are unable to submit work. Reader Membership is free of charge.
All members can read and rate work.
When a piece of work receives an average rating of +4 or more after at least 15 votes, it is then published in a compilation volume. A compilation volume is anything between 100 to 120 pages.
Writers will collectively receive 50% of sales profit, i.e., 50% of the royalties will be divided equally between the number of works in each volume. Royalties will be paid every quarter (1st January, 1st April, 1st July, 1st October). If the royalties due to individual members in any quarter are less than £5, payment will be held back to the following quarter.
Content criteria for each category:
- Short Stories (between 200 & 2,000 words)
- Poetry (a poem)
