Texture Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Texture Press is seeking short fiction for a new anthology:


We’re looking for stories that are edgy, young, old, disaffected, selfish and altogether fabulous. We’d like to see fiction from extreme conditions – hyper-industrialized regions, places of economic chaos, etc.  

Deadline: September 15, 2014

Authors whose work is selected will receive a complimentary print copy of the anthology.    

Projected date of publication: 12/2014 or 1/2015  

Stories should not exceed 1250 words.

Editors: Arlene Ang, Valerie Fox, Nathan Leslie, and Susan Smith Nash
