Dragon Gems
Dragon Gems

Dragon Gems is our publishing program for your short fiction when a novel just won't do.

We are currently closed for submissions. We plan to open for submissions for our Fall 2024 anthology on April 1, 2024.

Submission Requirements

Your story:

  • should be approximately 2,000 – 6,000 words in length.
  • should not contain erotica, or excessive violence or gore.
  • can be part of an ongoing series you might be writing.
  • can have been previously published (with proof that you hold the current publishing rights).
  • may be submitted simultaneously to other markets (but please let us know when you submit your story).

Please submit only one story per submission.

Send us your complete, finished manuscripts in digital (.DOCx, .RTF, or .ODT) format using this Submission Form.

Note: While our program is called Dragon Gems, your story does not need to include a dragon.

If you're not sure if your story is something that we'd be interested in publishing, please feel free to query us at dragongems (at) waterdragonpublishing.com in advance of submitting your manuscript.

Payment

Payment will be:

  • $0.02 per word
  • one (1) trade paperback contributor edition
  • one (1) hardcover contributor edition
  • access to ten (10) digital contributor copies

Manuscript Formats

Send us your complete, finished manuscripts in digital (.DOCx, .RTF, or .ODT) format using this Submission Form.

Please use a standard manuscript format. If you're not sure what one is, here's a good source.
