      Absolutely! I will edit the text to reflect this later today, but yes! The interpretation of warrior is up to you =) We will divide the anthology into parts based on content, but so far it seems like “fantasy” “sci-fi” and “social justice” warriors will all be represented by great examples!

      Hey! For anthologies we buy exclusive anthology rights (or reprint rights if your material has been published elsewhere before) for 12 months after the first print run.

      For the children’s rights we operate on a fairly standard “World English” publishing contract with some modifications (mostly due to the fact that we are a not-for-profit, so we increase the royalty percentage every year the work is in print, for example). If you send us an email at contact(at) I will be happy to show you our standard contract.
